Using order by in a view

Using order by in a view

Using order by in a view

I am new to sql but pasted the sql from cystal into a pervasive sql command and it ran.

I then made it into a view and it does not like the "order by". Does order by work in pervasive sql views or is there another way?


RE: Using order by in a view

What version of PSQL are you using?  
What's the exact error being returned?
How are you creating the view (what's the actual SQL statement)?  
The following works for me using PSQL v10.10:


create view view1 as select * from class order by name#
select * from view1

RE: Using order by in a view


The View is :-

SELECT "SUND__B6Price_Table"."PTABPrice_Table_No", "SUND__B6Price_Table"."DESCDescription"
 FROM   "SUND__B6Price_Table" "SUND__B6Price_Table"
 ORDER BY "SUND__B6Price_Table"."PTABPrice_Table_No

and the error shows first a load of text about links then:-

order<<???>> By  "SUND__B6Price_Table"

This is just a simple report but seems to dislike the order function.  I have read the order can be in the select area but I do not understand the syntax
