Thread: SQL query using where with multiple criterias

    SQL query using where with multiple criterias

    I'm able to connect and retreive data using the SQL string below BUT it seems the WHERE isn't working properly. hdr_RD section

    SQL = "SELECT [hdr11], [hdr31], [hdr32], [hdr33], [hdr34] FROM " & strTable & " WHERE [hdr_RD] Like 'New' OR [hdr_RD] Like 'Hold' AND [nhr_ISD_by] Like 'ES-8000-00' AND [ndr_TP] Like 'FV' OR [ndr_TP] = 'LV' OR [ndr_TP] = 'PV' OR [ndr_TP] = 'TV'"

    Look like a typo error or something missing?

    WHERE [hdr_RD] Like 'New*'
    WHERE [hdr_RD] Like '*New'
    WHERE [hdr_RD] Like '*New*'

    Depends on your string, pick convention from above.
    you may need to use % instead of *

    Also, I would use brackets as well.... if you don't i think you may run into unexpected results due to logic of AND and OR.

    you can also do like this:

    SQL = "SELECT [hdr11], [hdr31], [hdr32], [hdr33], [hdr34] FROM " & strTable & _
    " WHERE " & _
    "[hdr_RD] IN ('New', 'Hold') AND " &
    "[nhr_ISD_by] = 'ES-8000-00' AND " & _
    "[ndr_TP] IN ('FV', 'LV', 'PV', 'TV');"

    arnelgp: your solution is the perfect fit. I was unaware of this way to combine several criterias. Big Thanks!!!

    JKwan: I tried those but it wasn't the solution. Thanks!
