SQL syntax

(OP)
Yes, I am new too.  

I have been trying to create a join using sql, however I cannot find specific enough examples of the sql.  When I try to run it, I get 'A word is not recognized: SQL'.  Does anyone see what I am doing wrong.

I am trying to add this into an existing fex to resolve a many to many join issue that I have.

I have:

TABLE FILE filename
SQL
   SELECT field1, field2
FROM filename
WHERE criteria;
END
ON TABLE HOLD AS table FORMAT FOCUS INDEXfield;
END


Thanks

RE: SQL syntax

try to change your request such this.

SQL
   SELECT field1, field2
FROM filename
WHERE criteria;
TABLE
ON TABLE HOLD AS table FORMAT FOCUS INDEXfield
END

this will work fine.
