Access LIMIT Query Problems

Discussion in 'C#' started by stickman373, Jul 20, 2005.

  1. #1
    strSQL = "SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE expire_date>#" & dteDate & "# ORDER BY post_date DESC LIMIT 3;"

    If I take the LIMIT part off, it works, but add it on and it causes:

    Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'
    [Microsoft][ODBC Microsoft Access Driver] Syntax error in ORDER BY clause.

    /mghdevelopment/index1.asp, line 463


    Any ideas?

    What happens if you take the ORDER BY part off?

    I don't think Access has a limit keyword, you may be able to use TOP after the select keword e.g. select Top 5 * from .... that's how it works in MS SQL Server

    I knew I figured it out recently, but had another problem that made me remove it so I had no place to look it up. Hope that solves the problem.
