I keep getting MySQL error #1054, when trying to perform this update query:
UPDATE MASTER_USER_PROFILE, TRAN_USER_BRANCH SET MASTER_USER_PROFILE.fellow=`y` WHERE MASTER_USER_PROFILE.USER_ID = TRAN_USER_BRANCH.USER_ID AND TRAN_USER_BRANCH.BRANCH_ID = 17
It’s probably some syntax error, but I’ve tried using an inner join instead and other alterations, but I keep getting the same message:
Unknown column 'y' in 'field list'
Try using different quotes for “y” as the identifier quote character is the backtick (“`”). Otherwise MySQL “thinks” that you point to a column named “y”.
