two+ search fields - how to query?

Recommended Posts

i have the following query

 


SELECT * FROM hotels WHERE hotelname LIKE \'%$search%\' OR hotelcountry LIKE \'%$search%\' OR hoteladdress LIKE \'%$search%\' 

 

i have one search value coming in....but what if there is $search2 AND OR $search3 .....

 

please could someone enlighten me on this.... thanks

 

p.s. one of the values coming in would be a INT if it makes any difference !!

 

dont worry, sorted it !!

 

thanks

cant you have different text boxes from your form i.e. you have search as the name or one text box, call another.... ? searchcountry etccc..

yeah that is what i meant, having different boxes coming in. sorry if i didnt make myself clear!

 

i have managed to sort it now i am using the code....


SELECT * FROM hotels WHERE (hotelname LIKE \'%$hotelplace%\' OR hoteladdress LIKE \'%$hotelplace%\' OR hotelcountry LIKE \'%$hotelplace%\' OR hotelphone LIKE \'%$hotelplace%\') AND (hotelcountry LIKE \'%$country%\') AND (hotelrating LIKE \'%$rating%\') LIMIT 0, 50

 

which works nicely!!

 

All i gotta sort out now is what happens if the user enters a comma or other punctuation on the search field!!

 

cheers

Why not eliminate their ability to enter other chars then AZ and 0-9.

 

This can be done pretty easily with regex.
