Why am i seeing 'error: syntax error near unexpected token' in sql?

This error is usually a result of a syntax mistake in the SQL query. Common causes include missing quotes, parentheses, or other required symbols.


SELECT * FROM users WHERE name = Alice;


SELECT * FROM users WHERE name = 'Alice'; -- added single quotes around Alice
Ensure your SQL syntax is correct, especially regarding quotes and special characters.
