I want to increase the value of the Counter (an integer) by one.

Here is the SQL:

UPDATE `Article` set `Counter` = `Counter` + 1 where `ID` = '12345"

But when I try to use my SQL with SQLQuery(), I get an error: "Couldn't run query: Query was empty"

$sqlQuery = new SQLQuery();
$sqlQuery->sql = "UPDATE `Article_Live` set `Counter` = `Counter` + 1 where `ID` = '". $this->ID ."'";

That works, thanks.
