SELECT s.*, n.name AS neighborhood FROM nyc_neighborhoods AS n JOIN
nyc_subway_stations AS s ON ST_Contains(n.geom, s.geom);
When you do *, it picks up all columns from both tables and I don't think
QGIS likes duplicated columns

Subject: [postgis-users] Postgis spatial join display error
I am new to PostGIS and trying to learn how everything works. I am using
Introduction to PostGIS site data to test different GIS function including
spatial join. The spatial join SQL statement seems to work [SELECT * FROM
nyc_neighborhoods AS n JOIN nyc_subway_stations AS s ON ST_Contains(n.geom,
s.geom); ] but when I try to add the result to the QGIS I get an error
message saying "there was an error creating the SQL layer". When I tried the
simpler the SQL function by selecting only row with a particular name
[SELECT * FROM nyc_neighborhoods WHERE name = 'Soho';]. The SQL statement
worked as well as I was able to add the SQL layer on a map. I am using
QGIS's DB Manager to write SQL statements.
I was wondering what I am missing here.
Any suggestions or help will be appreciated. FYI. I have installed
PostgreSQL 12 with PostGIS 3.
