MySQL Question

MySQL SELECT record from database.table (database name contain '-')

I would like get row from another database so I created query:

SELECT * FROM database-test.users


MySQL result that error:


Database_Exception [ 42000 ]: SQLSTATE[42000]: Syntax error or access violation: 1064 You have an error in your SQL syntax; check the manual that corresponds to your MySQL server version for the right syntax to use near '-test.users' at line 1


Thanks for reply

You need to do it like below (use back-ticks around table name):-

SELECT * FROM `database-test`.users

Or

SELECT * FROM `database-test`.`users`
