How to query this record

How to query this record

How to query this record

(OP)
Hi

I have a record where value is Uj"\n"KL the field type as you can guess is varchar, when I query this record by this value i.e.

SELECT * FROM my_table WHERE trid='Uj"\n"KL' it does not return anything while this record exists, can any one please help me there.

Thanks for your help
Brenda

RE: How to query this record

Are you trying this query from the psql command line, or insinde a programming environment such as PHP. If you are using the query inside a programming environment, it's possible that the "\n" is being interpreted as a line break, instead of the literal text.

YOu might have to escape the double-quotes and double-escape the newline character:

SELECT * FROM my_table WHERE trid='Uj\"\\n\"KL'
