Search is not filtering out results

Hello Webassist! I'm hoping that you can help me solve a mystery.

We have two ecommerce sites which share one database between them. We differentiate products for our site using a ProductExclusiveFire column. "0" (our site) or "2" (both sites). We filtered the results in our recordset using WHERE (ProductExclusiveFire = 0 OR ProductExclusiveFire = 2)

php:
"SELECT DISTINCT products.* FROM products LEFT OUTER JOIN productcategoriesjoin ON JoinProduct = ProductID WHERE (ProductDeactivate = 0) AND (ProductExclusiveFire = 0 OR ProductExclusiveFire = 2)"



We also filtered our search results to say "AND NOT ProductExclusiveFire = 1"

php:
$WADbSearch1->addComparison("ProductExclusiveFire","1","AND NOT","=",1);

  $WADbSearch1->addComparison("ProductExclusiveBM","1","AND NOT","=",1);
  $WADbSearch1->addComparison("ProductDeactivate","1","AND NOT","=",1);
  $WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromList("JoinCategory","S_ProductCategoryID","AND","=",1);
  $WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("ProductName","S_ProductName","AND","Includes",0);
  $WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("ProductSKU","S_ProductName","OR","Includes",0);
  $WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("ProductManufacturer","S_ProductName","OR","Includes",0);
  $WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("ProductKeywords","S_ProductName","OR","Includes",0);
  $WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("ProductShortDesc","S_ProductName","OR","Includes",0);



After all of this filtering, still, when a user types a name that matches products (ProductExclusiveFire=1) the results still appear with the rest.

When a user selects a category, no ExclusiveFire products appear, but when typing a search term, ExclusiveFire products appear. Here is an example of search results which bring up both normal products and ExclusiveFire products (denoted by the flame icon).

My question is this : What would cause "fire exclusive products" appear in the search results despite these efforts to filter them out? Attached is the Results.php page. Any assistance is greatly appreciated.

hard coded conditions like this should be added in the Data Assist search, they should be added in the recordset where clause:

WHERE (ProductDeactivate = 0) AND (ProductExclusiveFire = 0 OR ProductExclusiveFire = 2) AND (ProductExclusiveFire <> 1) AND (ProductExclusiveBM <> 1) AND (ProductDeactivate <> 1)

Thanks for the quick reply! I modified the recordset to

php:
SELECT DISTINCT products.* FROM products LEFT OUTER JOIN productcategoriesjoin ON JoinProduct = ProductID WHERE (ProductDeactivate = 0) AND (ProductExclusiveFire = 0 OR ProductExclusiveFire = 2) AND (ProductExclusiveFire <> 1) AND (ProductExclusiveBM <> 1) AND (ProductDeactivate <> 1)"



I uploaded to the live site and tested the live page, but the FireExclusive products still show. Do I need to modify the Data Assist Search parameters also?

I'll need to troubleshoot directly, see the private message section.

2 things:

1) edit the data assist search server behavior, and remove the conditions for the ProductExclusiveFire, ProductExclusiveBM, and ProductDeactivate columns that where added to the recordset SQL

2) you have 5 criteria all set to use the S_ProductName form element, instead of using 5 criteria, use 1 and set it to be a key word, using a key word criteria type, you can select multiple columns to filter in the column list
