Qt SQL Query 'Parameter count mismatch' Problem

  • Hello,

    I am trying to use binding function of SQL Query but I have encountered a problem.

    I execute query like this:

            QSqlQuery query;
            q = QString("insert into records (id, name, surname, info) values (123, 'asd', 'qqq', ':info')");
            query.bindValue(":info", "KKKKKK");
            qDebug() << query.boundValues();
            if(!query.exec(q)) {
                 qDebug("Failed to query database: %s", qPrintable(query.lastError().text()));

    This query actually works, because there is NO value to be bound and info field in my row becomes ":info".

    Then I change ':info' to :info. Now I should be able to use binding feature, but it doesnt work. It gives me this error:

    QMap((":info", QVariant(QString, "KKKKKK")))
    Failed to query database:  Parameter count mismatch

    I tried to solve this problem from internet but everyone says something wrong in field names itself etc. Thats why I gave you the code without binding things.

    I am using Qt 5.11.2 on Ubuntu 18.04. DB is SQLite which has default settings.

    This is not what you want since you're now simply executing the given query. You want

    if (!query.exec())

  • @Christian-Ehrlicher Thanks. I literally wasted 2 hours to find this out. There are lots of things similar to this and all of these are decreasing my motivation.

    Idk, I think there should be a warning in function exec(q), since if you prepare something, you probably will not use the "bad" function.
