Did you try with another database as a backend? I like postgres as a
backend a lot.


I am writing a chapter of the Base Guide that includes using SQL in the Query Design dialog. Chapter 8 of the Base Guides covers using HSQLDB 2.2.8, MySQL, and PostgreSQL as back ends. So, I am not there quite yet. It seems that because Base uses HSQLDB 1.8, it does not conform with the user guide for the database engine it uses. When I get to that point, I will need to research how each of these backends use SQL.

On this simple level I would consider HSQLDB as free of bugs whereas the
primitive Base parser fails in many different ways.
Did you try the direct SQL mode (SQL view, menu:Edit>Run SQL directly)? If
you get reasonable result in direct mode, it is one of many bugs in the
Base's SQL parser.

      That is the one thing that I forgot to mention: I get the same
message when using direct SQL mode. I even tried using Tools > SQL, but
with the same message.
