This exception is raised on programming errors, for example when you have a syntax error in your SQL or a table was not found.

The following example shows how to handle syntax errors:

  cursor.execute("CREATE DESK t1 (id int, PRIMARY KEY (id))")
except mysql.connector.ProgrammingError as err:
  if err.errno == errorcode.ER_SYNTAX_ERROR:
    print("Check your syntax!")
    print("Error: {}".format(err))

errors.ProgrammingError is a subclass of errors.DatabaseError.
