hello guys, i have an sql statement that is supposed to be returning data from two tables that i have joined. Here is the code below:

  sql = "SELECT rooms.roomID, rooms.roomNumber, rooms.roomStatus, " & _
              "roomType.roomType, roomType.adultRate, roomType.childrenRate, roomType.roomTypeID FROM rooms " & _
              "JOIN roomType on rooms.roomType = roomType.roomTypeID"

        Dim daRooms As New OleDb.OleDbDataAdapter(sql, con)
        Dim dsRooms As New DataSet
        Try
            connectDatabase()
            daRooms.Fill(dsRooms, "rooms")
            DisconnectDB()
        Catch ex As Exception
            MessageBox.Show(ex.ToString)
            Clipboard.SetText(ex.ToString)
        End Try
        With DataGridView1
            .DataSource = dsRooms
            .DataMember = "rooms"
            .BorderStyle = BorderStyle.None
            .AllowUserToResizeRows = False
            .AutoSizeRowsMode = DataGridViewAutoSizeRowsMode.None
            .SelectionMode = DataGridViewSelectionMode.FullRowSelect
            .MultiSelect = False
            .DefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.AliceBlue
            .AlternatingRowsDefaultCellStyle.BackColor = Color.Gray
        End With

Below is the error tha i am getting in th eexception:

Please help out ...

Try

sql = "SELECT rooms.roomID, rooms.roomNumber, rooms.roomStatus,roomType.roomType, " _
    & "       roomType.adultRate, roomType.childrenRate, roomType.roomTypeID " _
    & "  FROM rooms INNER JOIN roomType " _
    & "    ON rooms.roomType = roomType.roomTypeID"

Well, it now generates the following error

System.Data.OleDb.OleDbException: Invalid SQL statement; expected 'DELETE', 'INSERT', 'PROCEDURE', 'SELECT', or 'UPDATE'.

Hi,

Your SQL statement contains "roomType.roomType"
Make sure, "roomType" Table, has "roomType" Column Name
