Search not working with WHERE clause

Search not working with WHERE clause

Please see attached.

Basic stuff... I have a database with articles and a form to search with. The search form has 4 drop down menus. The search function seems to work correctly. My problem is that on the rsArticles recordset, I need to sort the results by active = 1. In the database, a column named active is either 1 or 0. 1 is active, 0 is not. So if my recordset is SELECT * FROM articles, then the search function works correctly. If I change my recordset to SELECT * FROM articles WHERE active = 1, then the search results return ALL records that are marked active regardless if they meet search criteria.

I think what I need is to group the mySql statement differently but I'm unsure how to do this with the DataAssist Search recordset.

Any ideas?

You probably just want to change all of the"OR" references to "AND" in these lines:


$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("title1","Equipment","OR","=",0);
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("title2","Industry","OR","=",0);
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("title3","Application","OR","=",0);
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("title4","Process","OR","=",0);

Unfortunatly no, that will not work. The search results are for any of the options, not all of them. The logic would be search for Any where active=1

add the active = 1 where clasue to the rsArticles recordset:

SELECT * FROM port_article WHERE active = 1

Thanks for the reply. I tried that and therein lies the problem. As the code is now, see attached, When any search is done, it returns ALL records where active = 1 regardless of search criteria. If I remove the active = 1 from the recordset, it displays correctly according to the search criteria. I just have to figure out how to display correctly with the search criteria AND active = 1.

I attached an image of the Dataassist sample search. It shows:

WHERE active = '1'(title1 = 'Equipment') OR (title2 = 'Industry') OR (title3 = 'Application') OR (title4 = ('Process')

To accomplish what I need, I should be able to group mySql statement such as:

WHERE active = '1' AND (title1 = 'Equipment' OR title2 = 'Industry' OR title3 = 'Application' OR title4 = 'Process')

I just don't know how to accomplish this within the code Dataassist creates.

There is no way to do grouping with the interface, but you may be able to do it manually...

Try adding this above the recordset:

<?php
if ($WADbSearch1->whereClause) $WADbSearch1->whereClause = "(".$WADbSearch1->whereClause.")";
?>

Per Ray, this is the solution: Place this code directly above the recordset. Make sure the recordset has the WHERE clause, in my case WHERE active = '1'.

<?php
if ($WADbSearch1->whereClause) $WADbSearch1->whereClause = " AND (".substr($WADbSearch1->whereClause,3).")";
?>

Thank you Ray!
