Mysql where clause in visual c++

Hi,
I have a program in visual c++ .net that connects to a remote Mysql server.
Everything works just fine, I only have a problem when I execute a Mysql query to retrive data:

if I use the following it works just fine

            format = _T("SELECT * FROM clienti WHERE Client_code LIKE '%s'");

            sql.Format(format,m_searchString);

if I try to use this:

            format = _T("SELECT * FROM clienti WHERE Client_code  LIKE '%s' || Name LIKE '%s'");

            sql.Format(format,m_searchString);

where I only added "OR" to wide the search, either gives no result at all or only gives results of the first where clause "Client_code  LIKE '%s' "

I wonder if I need a special syntax to implement "OR" and "AND" statement in visual c++ .net and libmySQL.

Do you have any ideas??

thanks rik

If you change || to OR, it should give you the proper results:
format = _T("SELECT * FROM clienti WHERE Client_code  LIKE '%s' OR Name LIKE '%s'");
Plus, there's a problem with your Format call. You're only giving it one variable to match one %s; you need a variable for each %s.
sql.Format(format,m_searchString, m_searchString);

Hope this helps.
