URL parameter with 2 vaiables

I have a simple recordset that displays records from a url posted to it.
The record set only looks at one field in a table but I want to be able to send 2 variables to this record set ie send variable1 and variable2 in a url. I then need the record set to show all entries in the table that match either variable1 or variable2.

Currently it looks like this

if (!function_exists("GetSQLValueString")) {
function GetSQLValueString($theValue, $theType, $theDefinedValue = "", $theNotDefinedValue = "")
if (PHP_VERSION < 6) {
$theValue = get_magic_quotes_gpc() ? stripslashes($theValue) : $theValue;

$theValue = function_exists("mysql_real_escape_string") ? mysql_real_escape_string($theValue) : mysql_escape_string($theValue);

switch ($theType) {
case "text":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "long":
case "int":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? intval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "double":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? doubleval($theValue) : "NULL";
case "date":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? "'" . $theValue . "'" : "NULL";
case "defined":
$theValue = ($theValue != "") ? $theDefinedValue : $theNotDefinedValue;
return $theValue;

$colname_company_list = "-1";
if (isset($_GET['region'])) {
$colname_company_list = (get_magic_quotes_gpc()) ? $_GET['region'] : addslashes($_GET['region']);
mysql_select_db($database_brighton, $brighton);
$query_company_list = sprintf("SELECT * FROM directory WHERE region = %s ORDER BY listing_type ASC, business_name ASC", GetSQLValueString($colname_company_list, "text"));
$company_list = mysql_query($query_company_list, $brighton) or die(mysql_error());
$row_company_list = mysql_fetch_assoc($company_list);
$totalRows_company_list = mysql_num_rows($company_list);

mysql_select_db($database_brighton, $brighton);
$query_region = "SELECT * FROM regions ORDER BY region ASC";
$region = mysql_query($query_region, $brighton) or die(mysql_error());
$row_region = mysql_fetch_assoc($region);
$totalRows_region = mysql_num_rows($region);

You need to go into Advanced View to add more conditions to the recordset.

See the following documentation on the Adobe Website for creating Recordsets in advanced view:

Hi Jason

Sorry i'm not a programmer which is why I love Webassist.

the url looks like this filenmae.php?region=xxxx&region=yyyy (this may also be wrong)

how do i add a condition to list the regions that have xxxx OR yyyy in them

Below is an example of a URL link and processing query that requests (2) dates. Your example would be similar.

<a href="filename.php?Start=xxxx&End=yyyy">MY LINK</a>

$query_getDaterange = "SELECT * FROM my_table WHERE

 Date BETWEEN '".$_GET['Start']."' AND '".$_GET['End']."'";

You cant have two qurystring variables with the same name. each one needs to have a unique name.

In the advanced view of the Dreamweaver Recordset window, you should already have the first condition set up as an example.

You will need to add another condition to the recordset to filter the other column, the adobe help article I pointed you to will explain how to do this.
