I am using JsForce to query my orgs salesforce data. I am trying to select all quotes that belong to salespeople from my division. I am very new to SOQL and SalesForce so the best I have come up with is:

SELECT GrandTotal FROM Quote WHERE Owner.Division='Europe'

However this errors with "Did not understand relationship" even though I can see in the salesforce ui that the owner field of a quote has a division attribute. Any help would be appreciated.

The reason this query doesn't work is because for Quote, the OwnerId field is polymorphic to both User and Group

So, you need to use a polymorphic query:

SELECT GrandTotal FROM Quote WHERE Owner.Type = 'User' AND Owner.Division='Europe'

Polymorphic query reference
