Newbie here. Having trouble with a multi-table join exercise, code below. A two-table join works fine but more than that produces this error:
Msg 102, Level 15, State 1, Line 11
Incorrect syntax near 'vt_exam_details'.

Every query with 3 or more tables produces this error on the second joined table. I'm running 2008R2 on Windows 7.


use a_vets;
go

SELECT
ED.ex_id,
EH.ex_date,
S.srv_id,
ED.ex_fee
FROM
vt_animals as A
INNER JOIN
vt_exam_headers as EH on (A.an_id = EH.an_id)
vt_exam_details as ED on (EH.ex_id = ED.ex_id)
vt_services as S on (ED.srv_id = S.srv_id)
WHERE
A.an_type in ('rodent')
ORDER BY
S.srv_id;
GO

The problem is that you left out the other INNER JOIN statements:

...
FROM
vt_animals as A
INNER JOIN
vt_exam_headers as EH on A.an_id = EH.an_id
INNER JOIN
vt_exam_details as ED on EH.ex_id = ED.ex_id
INNER JOIN
vt_services as S on ED.srv_id = S.srv_id



Hope that helps.

Yep, makes it MUCH easier to see what you were doing wrong. Way to go, young Jedi.
