Hi,
I am having trouble creating a stored procedure from my vb.net application. I am creating the database tables/views/procedures etc from my application. I can create the tables and views just fine. When I get to the stored procedures I get told there is an error in my SQL syntax. Running this SQL statement in MySQL workbench runs just fine. It is only when I run it from my application that I get told there is an error with the syntax.

The relevant section of code is below

Code:

        cmd.ExecuteNonQuery()

Has anyone got any ideas why this query returns a syntax error?

Thanks in advance.

I'm guessing that it's because you have no line breaks within your String. You've broken your VB code over multiple lines but that doesn't translate to a multiline String.

I would recommend using an XML literal for SQL code. It makes things much more natural, e.g.
Dim sql = <sql>
              SELECT *
              FROM MyTable
              WHERE MyColumn IS NOT NULL
          </sql>
Dim query As String = sql.Value
That will put the appropriate line breaks in your SQL without your having to put them into your String with Environment.NewLine or similar cumbersome method.

Thanks for the input.
I tried it as XML. Being new to VB I didn't know I could write strings like this, it is much easier to read and write, but I get the same results with the query. The query only runs if I run the DROP procedure in a separate statement and remove the DELIMITER lines. This is a workable solution.
