MySQL – 1305 or 1630 Error – Function does not exist

Problem: Receive either “1630: FUNCTION MAX does not exist. Check the ‘Function Name Parsing and Resolution’ section in the Reference Manual” or “1305: FUNCTION MAX does not exist”.
Solution: Remove all spaces between the function and the parenthesis or set sql_mode=’IGNORE_SPACE’;

This is causing the error:

SELECT MAX (id) as something FROM Example

This will work correctly:

SELECT MAX(id) as something FROM Example
