MySQL select from two concatenated strings not working
I’m trying to select the data from a table called t32 with the following code:
SELECT timestamp AS "time", id FROM CONCAT('t', "32")
However the following error appears:
#1064 - Fehler in der SQL-Syntax. Bitte die korrekte Syntax im Handbuch nachschlagen bei '("t", "32") LIMIT 0, 25' in Zeile 4
free translation to english:
#1064 - Error in SQL syntax. Please look up the correct syntax near '("t", "32") LIMIT 0, 25' in line 4
However if I use
SELECT timestamp AS "time", id FROM t32
everything works like expected.
about help i would be very happy
