in thread Ranking MySQL Entries?

I'm not's weird. I use phpmyadmin, and run that exact SQL statement against the database and get exactly what I want, but when I put it in a query for DBI to do, it says I have an error in my SQL syntax? Shouldn't whatever works on phpmyadmin just be able to be copy and pasted into the query for DBI->do?

    DBI->do does not return values.

    In principle still, you should be able to "just" use the same SQL.

    As you don't show the relevant code, it's hard to advise you further. Showing the relevant code and data, and making it as self-contained as possible helps us help you better.
