Handling Decimals with operators

Hi Folks,
I am trying to make a query that will not return any item larger than 3.000
in a width field, but I have an item returning with a width of 7.500

I am wondering if it is a function of a 3 place decimal field.

Here is the query:
SELECT *
FROM `Catalog`
WHERE `Catalog`.desig ner LIKE 'Victorian' AND `Catalog`.width <3.000
ORDER BY `Catalog`.sold

I've tried it with single quotes, but the item still comes up.
AND `Catalog`.width <'3.000'

What is weird is that the designer field has nothing like Victorian in it,
but it still pops up.

Jeff

You don't even say what DBMS you're using. Assuming it's MySQL, this equals to:

.... WHERE (`Catalog`.desi gner LIKE ('Victorian' AND `Catalog`.width )) < 3

Thank you!

Yes,it is MySql. I also found that my page had a partial query not
completely overwritten, so it was screwing things up badly.

I'm interested in an idiom for handling errors in functions without using traditional nested ifs, because I think that can be very awkward and difficult to maintain, when the number of error checks gets about 3 or so. It also gets very awkward in nested loops, where you want to check for normal loop processing in the loop condition, not errors. Yes, you could put some generic exit flag in the loop condition, but when you're simply done if...

I am very new to Python (I started learning it just yesterday), but I have encountered a problem. I want to make a simple script that calculates the n-th root of a given number (e.g. 4th root of 625--obviously five, but it's just an example :P), and because there is no nth-root function in Python I will do this with something like x**(1/n). However, with some, but not all, decimals, they do not seem to 'equal themselves'. This is...

In Windows 11 and 10, there is no way to turn off the Windows Update option using the Control Panel or Settings app; it automatically checks for updates and installs any it finds, whether you like it or not. For most users, this new feature is actually very convenient. If you want to control the update process,...
