[RESOLVED] Unknown column in 'where clause'

Hi everyone,

I am getting this error (quoted below) when executing the query in PHP - however when I copy/paste the query into phpmyadmin, it executes and finds the data accordingly.

I have tried to also use provider_key in a for-loop ($row['provider_key']) and it would return an error (undefined index 'provider_key') as well. But if I use {$row.provider_key} in a template, it returns the data fine.

I have spent around 4 hours now fighting with this, it's really strange and perhaps its a limitation with xenforo - I would really appreciate some help here :(

Server Error in Xenforo
Zend_Db_Statement_Mysqli_Exception: Mysqli prepare error: Unknown column 'provider_key' in 'where clause' - library/Zend/Db/Statement/Mysqli.php:77

Stack Trace (I have replaced certain words with hidden for privacy)

Query Run via my Roster addon
$row = $db->fetchAll('SELECT
FROM `xf_user` AS user
INNER JOIN `xf_user_external_auth` AS `steam` ON (steam.user_id = user.user_id)
INNER JOIN `xf_user_field_value` AS `division` ON (division.user_id = user.user_id)
AND `field_id`="division"
AND `provider_key`="76561198047582366"
AND (`user_group_id`="10" OR `user_group_id`="63" OR `user_group_id`="11")
GROUP BY user.user_id');

Result in phpmyadmin (copy/paste the query above into phpymadmin)

To avoid any confusion, the fields 'provider' and 'provider_key' are shown in HEX in phpmyadmin, hence why it won't match visually, but the data does match.

Well that was stupid. I had two of the same query running, but the other one didn't inner join with the table. I hadn't realized :p
