Puncuation in a WHERE clause

Puncuation in a WHERE clause

Puncuation in a WHERE clause

(OP)
Oh so close smile

Apache, PHP and odbc to a remote Access database

(sample data, table = log, columns = ip_adress and user_name)
"192.168.22.1","Jones-Bill"
"192.168.22.2","Jones-Jane"
"192.168.22.1","Jones-Bill"
"192.168.22.2","Jones-Jane"
"192.168.22.1","Jones-Bill"
"192.168.22.2","Jones-Jane"

Works

CODE

$sql = "SELECT ip_address, user_name FROM [log] WHERE [user_name] = 'Jones-Bill'";
Does not work

CODE

$sql = "SELECT ip_address, user_name FROM [log] WHERE [ip_address] = '192.168.22.1'";

I have tried using '192\.168\.22\.1' to no avail. I do not know how to properly escape the periods. (I think)

RE: Puncuation in a WHERE clause





Hi,

Are you sure that there are not trailing spaces?

CODE

$sql = "SELECT ip_address, user_name FROM [log] WHERE TRIM([ip_address]) = '192.168.22.1'";

Skip,
