hello could someone help please i just wondered if you could put multiple querys into one column for example i have a column name called firstname and i want to put 10 first names in there would i have to write firstname 10 times and then write each value individuly or is there a better way? thanks for yr time ben
Do you mean that you want to store in the FirstName column something like this: FirstName1,FirstName2,FirstName3,FirstName4,... (in which case you'd set your FirstName column to be the string created by appending FirstName1 + "," + FirstName2 +"," - the db doesn't care what you really put in the column if it's a text field with sufficient length) Or do you mean that you want to write a query like this: SELECT * FROM TableX Where FirstName Like "FirstName1" OR FirstName Like "FirstName2" OR . . . (also could be written like SELECT * FROM TableX where FirstName In ("FirstName1", "FirstName2", "FirstName3". . .) - but then you need a precise text match, instead of the ability to do a LIKE query).
