Thank you for your input. When using 2 it signals the relational database to sort by #2. This si within the table structure and references the column_id.
I'm still getting the same issue, and the onyl thing I can think of is what version of SQLite are you using.
I started up the SQLite Manager and I see version 188.8.131.52. This is just about the only thing I can think of. Otherwise, I'm going to shutdown this old cow struggling to run aptana.
Also, Makana, can you tell me which version of Air you are running? I'm running Beta 2.0. But if one of my comboxes has not problem accessing SQLite, and don't see the relation, but nonetheless, good to know what versiosn we are running.
