  • Microsoft Visual FoxPro 5.0a



This article was previously published under Q169367

SYMPTOMS

When you try to update more than 23 columns of a view, the update fails and the following error message appears:

Error 1812 SQL: Statement too long

CAUSE

There is a fixed limit to how complex the WHERE clause of a query can be. It is limited to 200 simple expression elements or less (where one element is a variable reference, or a function call, etc.). With the WhereType view property set to KeyAndModified, and then updating all the fields will generate an UPDATE query that exceeds the WHERE clause limits.

RESOLUTION

Setting the WhereType of the View to Key (1) instead of KeyAndModified (3) resolves this problem.

In the sample code in the Steps to Reproduce Behavior below, change the following line of code:

   =DBSetProp('VGOLF', 'View', 'WhereType', 3)
                

to:

   =DBSetProp('VGOLF', 'View', 'WhereType', 1)
                

It is the 5th line below:

                                  • View setup for VGOLF ***************


After making the change, rerun the program and the update will be successful.

STATUS

Microsoft has confirmed this to be a bug in the Microsoft products listed at the beginning of this article. This has been corrected in Visual FoxPro 6.0.
