Searching a mySQL table using multiple criteria

Recommended Posts

Here\'s the story:


I need to look up entries from a table that fulfil the following criteria:


banner=\\\"top\\\"   [\\\"banner\\\" field is set(\'top\',\'bottom\')]

start<=date(\'U\') [\\\"start\\\" field is a unix timestamp]

end>=date(\'U\')  [\\\"end\\\" field is a unix timestamp]


However, the following query does not seem to work:


\"SELECT * FROM table WHERE banner=\'top\' AND start<=\'$datenow\' AND end>=\'$datenow\'\"


where $datenow=date(\'U\'). If I remove the second AND clause, it works OK. The question is: how do I look up entries in my table that fulfil the above 3 criteria?


Any help would be highly appreciated.
