~ I am a new Zope user and am attempting to access field names of a
~ ZSQL method.  I have read and tried to use the How-To : "Access
~ the field names and fields of any arbitrary ZQSL query" by teyc.
~ The code suggested there has not worked.
~
~ For example, when I use the code:
~
~ <dtml-in SQL.names>
~   <dtml-let vname=sequence-item
~   vvalue="SQL()[0][_['sequence-index']]">
~     <dtml-var vname>,
~    <dtml-var vvalue><br>
~   </dtml-let>
~ </dtml-in>
~
~ I get the error:
~ Error Type: KeyError
~              Error Value: SQL.names
~
~ I have nested the above code  in code that references a ZSQL
~ method, as well as trying several other permutations, but nothing
~ has worked. I'm wondering if this is a name lookup problem.
~
~ In checking this news group I see that several others have had
~ similar problems.  See:

Can anyone tell me (us)  how to correctly do this, or what mistake I (we) am
making.



I think i can tell you.   When zope encounters something inside quotes, it
generally treats it as a python expression.  Python is treating what you
thought was a hyphen as a minus sign and trying to subtract the variable
"index" from the variable "sequence" in this line of code:

   <dtml-let vname=sequence-item
        vvalue="SQL()[0][_['sequence-index']]">

The easy solution is to name your variable sequence_item instead of
sequence-item.  I think there's also a way to actually name a variable
sequence-item, but it involves an underscore and parens _(  )  and some more
funky syntax, but it's a lot easier to just stop using hyphens in variable
names.
