things have become a bit clearer now.
Yes, I created the query via the Base GUI. The query is called up by
Data control of the form.
OpenSUSE provides only the ODBC connector for mariadb, no JDBC
It is the behaviour of the GUI query editor that got me confused.
With the GUI query editor, I copied the entire table as <tablename>.*
into the query fields. I followed up by adding two of the table fields
to the query and selected 'ascending' for sorting for each of these 2
fields. I noticed then, that I could not deselect the 'Visible' flags
for these 2 sort fields. Why on earth not? The behaviour means that the
2 fields will each now appear twice when running the query. No wonder
then that the Form based on this query did not transfer the data from
those fields back to the table. It could not cope with the ambiguity
On inspecting the SQL text of the query, I was expecting a query of the
SELECT * FROM <tablename> ORDER BY <Field1> ASC, <Field2> ASC
What I saw was:
SELECT * <tablename>.*, <tablename>.<Field1>, <tablename>.<Field2> FROM
<schema>.<tablename> <tablename> ORDER BY <Field1> ASC, <Field2> ASC
After deleting the text ', <tablename>.<Field1>, <tablename>.<Field2>'
from the SQL query, the extra fields were not displayed on running the
query. But on saving the query again, the deleted text was added again,
and it's back to square one.
Is this a bug? It can't be right, that the 'Visible' flags of the extra
fields cannot be deselected. Obviously, the corresponding SQL queries,
with or without the flags are different giving different query results,
but the GUI behaviour forces only the one variant. Also, surely,
'hidden' behaviour, as happens to the SQL text by just saving the GUI
query without any changes must always be wrong.
Fortunately, I have the workaround of removing the sort fields from the
GUI query and adding them to the form.
