MySQL 1351

This error occurs when a variable is used in the SELECT list of a view without the presence of a GROUP BY clause.

How It Affects Your App

MySQL 1351 ER_VIEW_SELECT_VARIABLE error indicates that a variable is used in the SELECT list of a view definition. This error can prevent the application from executing the query and thus can cause the application to fail. It can also lead to unexpected results if the query is executed without the variable. This can lead to data inconsistency and incorrect results. Therefore, it is important to ensure that the view definition does not contain any variables.

3. Check the MySQL user privileges:

mysql> SELECT User, Host, Password FROM mysql.user;
4. Check the MySQL database tables:
$ mysql -u root -p
5. Check the MySQL database table structure:
$ mysql -u root -p
mysql> DESCRIBE table_name;
6. Check the MySQL database table indexes:
$ mysql -u root -p
mysql> SHOW INDEX FROM table_name;
7. Check the MySQL database table data:
$ mysql -u root -p
mysql> SELECT * FROM table_name;
