I have a custom routine on my system which show a list of all products for sale in a simple drop-down box. It works fine, and I use the following SQL statement:

sql1="SELECT * FROM products ORDER by pother3"

What I would like to do, is to NOT display in the list products where the 'hide' dB field is blank. I cannot recall the SQL syntax to exclude certain results when doing the selection.

Ideas???

Thanks..John

try:

select * from products where hide is not null order by pother3

or if you want to show products which are normally hidden, use:

select * from products where hide=1 order by pother3

Simon,

Thanks for the note..

I tried the first option (select * from products where hide is not null order by pother3) but the results appeared to be the same as before (the hidden products were still showing).

I tried the second option (select * from products where hide=1 order by pother3) and no products showed - which is strange as I know I have some items that are hidden.

I gave it one last try, and ammended the last option to: "select * from products where hide=0 order by pother3" and now it works perfect, filtering out the hidden products.

Thanks...
