Kindly help me with the same.

Kindly help me with the same.We would if you post the relevant lines of code you are using. All we can say right now is, that you have a syntax error near "from" in your sql statement, but I guess you know that already...

could u post your query. this looks more like a error in query. May be your query is being arrived at after some manipulation with qstring methods. It can help if you look into that.

First of all thanks for the support.

Ya i know that theres some syntax error in the query but I'm not able to figure it out as i can run the same query successfully from the terminal. Anyways, I'm posting the relevant lines of code below :

QSqlQuery query(mRemoteDB);

QString queryStr = QString("SELECT nsdqaohlcv.open, nsdqaohlcv.hightime, nsdqaohlcv.high, nsdqaohlcv.lowtime, nsdqaohlcv.low, nsdqaohlcv.close, nsdqaohlcv.volume, nsdqaohlcv.trades FROM \"nsdqaohlcv\", \"stock\", \"calendar\" WHERE nsdqaohlcv.stock_id = stock.stock_id AND nsdqaohlcv.date_id = calendar.date_id AND stock.symbol = '%1' AND calendar.date = ( SELECT MAX(date) FROM \"calendar\" WHERE EXTRACT (DOW FROM date) >= 1 AND EXTRACT(DOW FROM date) <= 5 AND date < 'today' AND isholiday IS NULL)").arg(mStockname);

bool retVal = query.exec(queryStr);

QString errMsg = QString( "Error executing query: %1\n"
"Error Message from Database: %2"
mpError->setMessage(errMsg, Error::Critical);

SQL uses single quotes to delimit strings not double quotes.

Edit: I reread the query. Disregard this comment.

I just remover the double quotes from the table names but still the query does not gets executed
