I have 3 tables as shown below.

i want to retrieve all the 'Rest' that has 'Ant_id = 1 and 2 and 3 and 4 so on'...

i tried the below queries...din work

suggestions please!

Table Rest
----------
Rest_id
Rest

Table Ant
---------
Ant_id
Ant_name

Table RestAnt
-------------
Rest_id
Ant_id


1.select rest from rest where rest_id in ( select rest_id from restant where ant_id in ( 1,2,3 ) );
- this is equivalent to an 'OR'

2.select re.rest from rest re, restant ra where ra.rest_id = re.rest_id and ant_id = 1 and ant_id = 2;
- this did not work

Wrong forum, methinks.

ant_id = 1 and ant_id = 2;

This is impossible. Ant_id will never be both 1 and 2 for the same record. The following two do what you want:

ant_id in (1, 2);
ant_id = 1 or ant_id = 2;
