adding missing FROM-clause

P: n/a
C G
Dear All,

I have a simple join query

SELECT c1 FROM t1
INNER JOIN
t2 ON t2.c2 = t1.c2 WHERE t3.c3= t2.c3;

Which gives the expected result but I get the message
NOTICE: adding missing FROM-clause entry for table "t3"

How do I get rid of this NOTICE, i.e. how should I construct my select
query.

Many thanks

Colin

SELECT c1 FROM t1, t2, t3
WHERE t2.c2 = t1.c2 AND t3.c3 = t2.c3;

or

SELECT c1 FROM t1
INNER JOIN t2 ON t2.c2 = t1.c2
INNER JOIN t3 ON T3.c3 = t2.c3;
The above can also be written as

SELECT c1 FROM t1
JOIN t2 USING(c2)
JOIN t3 USING(c3);

or even
SELECT c1 FROM t1
NATURAL JOIN t2
NATURAL JOIN t3;

This last might be problematic if t3 has a column named c1.
Question:

Is there any advantage to specifying USING() rather than ON? I know
that if I do SELECT * from T1 JOIN t2 USING(col) then I only get 1
instance of col in the returned rows, but I'm wondering if there is
any advantage to the planner by specifying either USING() or ON?

Your join doesn't alias anything as t3
I'd say you get rid of the notice once you replace t3 with t1

Which gives the expected result but I get the message
NOTICE: adding missing FROM-clause entry for table "t3"

TIP 9: the planner will ignore your desire to choose an index scan if your
joining column's datatypes do not match
