Hi I need some help please

I have several custom fields in a table and want to retrieve the records that match maybe two or three or four of these customised fields.

I have written the query as follows:
SELECT T0.[ItemCode], T0.[ItemName], T0.[U_Brand], T0.[U_BrandOwn], T0.[U_Product], T0.[U_Olfactive1], T0.[U_Olfactive2], T0.[U_Olfactive3], T0.[U_Desc1], T0.[U_Desc2]

WHERE T0.[U_Brand] = $[OQUT.U_Brand] or T0.[U_BrandOwn] = $[OQUT.U_BrandOwn] or T0.[U_Product] = $[OQUT.U_Product] or T0.[U_Olfactive1] = $[OQUT.U_Olfactive1] or T0.[U_Olfactive2] = $[OQUT.U_Olfactive2] or T0.[U_Olfactive3] = $[OQUT.U_Olfactive3]

This returns all items where U_Brand is amber also all records where U_Olifactive1 = Fruity, what I want is only the records that match Amber and are Fruity. The or statement is cusing the problem, if I use the and statement then I must select something from each customised field.

Can anyone help me please

Do you want to include if all the other conditions are true?

Try using parenthesis to group your conditions...

I want to include all records that match the two, three, or four entries that I make in the selection regardless of the values of any of the other fields. The combination of selected fields may well be different every time the product file is searched.

Thank you for Interest

Expand|Select|Wrap|Line Numbers
  1. WHERE (T0.[U_Brand] = $[OQUT.U_Brand] or T0.[U_Olfactive1] = $[OQUT.U_Olfactive1]) and
  2. T0.[U_BrandOwn] = $[OQUT.U_BrandOwn] and T0.[U_Product] = $[OQUT.U_Product] and 
  3.  T0.[U_Olfactive2] = $[OQUT.U_Olfactive2] and T0.[U_Olfactive3] = $[OQUT.U_Olfactive3]
will return if U_Brand = OQUT.U_Brand or U_Olfactive1 = if one of this condition is true, the whole condition is true...the rest, however, must be true in order to be the entire condition be true...

Good luck
