rails 4.2 query with operator in

Hi, there.

I’m trying to solve a problem that previously worked on rails 3.2 and isn’t in rails 4.2:

The query is the following:


.where(‘projects.id IN (?)’, @projects.map { |p| p.id })

.includes(:expenses, :baseline => [:project, :coordinator]).

The error is this:

SQLite3::SQLException: no such column: projects.id: SELECT "investments".* FROM "investments" INNER JOIN "classifications" ON "classifications"."id" = "investments"."classification_id" INNER JOIN "baselines" ON "baselines"."id" = "investments"."baseline_id" WHERE "classifications"."pl_line_mask" IN (0, 1, 8, 10, 11) AND "baselines"."type_mask" = ? AND (projects.id IN (169,177,286,292,301,360,361,365,422,423,424,438,443,452,472,520,525,566,575,583,592,604,605,606,607,608,609,610,611,612,613,614,615,616,617,618,619,620,622))

I believe this error is related to how the in operator is been used. I can't find documentation related to this operator.

How can I solve this situation?

Thank you in advance,

Hi João,

The problem is that you don’t have a field called ‘projects.id’ in the ‘investments’ table. Does your investment model belongs to one project? Then you would do


.where(project_id: @projects.map { |p| p.id })

.includes(:expenses, baseline: [:project, :coordinator])

However, I need to have more information on the database schema to have a better insight. It could also be that you have a many to many relationship between projects and investments and you would need other setup for that, but it depends on how the fields are setup.

Kind regards,

First of all, thank you for your quick reply!!!

The relation is a bit complex:

in the investment’s model there is this relation:

belongs_to :project, :class_name => “Baseline”, :foreign_key => :baseline_id
this is the relation between investment and project

I suspect the issue is that you’ve referred directly to a primary key called projects.id in your SQL, but (from the belongs_to call) we can see that column is actually called baseline_id.

Have you tried changing ‘projects.id IN (?)’ to ‘projects.baseline_id IN (?)’ in your initial query? That might sort it.
