If I\'m wanting to select records from a database between two numbers, what would be the best way to write the SQL statement for it?

Here\'s what I have currently, but for some reason it doesn\'t work...

SELECT * FROM guestbook_main WHERE entry_num >= " . $min . " and entry_num <= " . $max . " ORDER BY entry_num DESC;

This doesn\'t return anything, but if I take off the \"and entry_num <= $max\" part of it, it will return all of the entries. I tried using BETWEEN but it didn\'t work either.

Can anyone help me out?

Try this query

SELECT * FROM guestbook_main WHERE entry_num between  \'$min\' and \'$max\' ORDER BY entry_num DESC
