Someone may have replied to you by now so I apologize if this is old news
but I think the problem _precedes_
enabled = '1'
Take a look at the SQL just BEFORE that where you wrote:
countryid = ,
That is surely not valid SQL in any dialect of SQL I have ever seen. You
need an appropriate value before the comma, such as:
countryid = 7,
countryid = '7',
If you don't want to assign a value to countryid, just omit the entire
'countryid =,' altogether.
