That's correct, your query is failing. Even when you get the syntax corrected however, you still should not assume that it will execute every time. If a table was deleted or corrupted during a backup or altered accidentally or because of an attack on the system, you might still get an error that will stop your application and possibly reveal more information to an attacker. Every MySQL function returns a value that evaluates to false when something goes wrong. Use an if construct to determine if the call to the function was successful before going on. If there is an error, you can then handle it gracefully.
