MySQL++ Query


Hey Everyone,

I am creating a Reservation DB and C++ program and have caught a snag. I am using Linux, MySQL, MySQL++, and C++ for developing this program. I am having trouble executing a command.

I want to run the query that looks like this

mysql_query(con,"SELECT * FROM RESERVATIONS WHERE STATUS = 'EnterStatus'");

EnterStatus is a variable that accepts the value from a user input on a basic cin line.

This query returns me 0 results if I were to type in confirmed for EnterStatus. However if I run the query as

mysql_query(con,"SELECT * FROM RESERVATIONS WHERE STATUS = \'confirmed\'");

This returns 5 results as it should. Am I not using correct syntax for passing a varaible into a query or am I just missing something?

Thanks all for your help!!!

You should pass the content of the EnterStatus variable to the query, not the word 'EnterStatus'. My C++ is a bit rusty, but is should be something like

mysql_query(con,"SELECT * FROM RESERVATIONS WHERE STATUS = '" + EnterStatus + "'");
