Help creating SQL statment with OR

I'm trying to create an SQL which returns any records where 'category' ir equal to any of these four terms: 'Club' 'Club and Bar' 'Restaurant and Club'  'Restaurant, Bar and Club'

My current SQL returns all the records in the database, no matter what is in the 'category' column can someone show me what I'm doing wrong?

rsclubs.Source = "SELECT *  FROM entertainment  WHERE category = 'Club and Bar' OR 'Club' OR 'Restaurant and Club' OR 'Restaurant, Bar and Club'  ORDER BY ID DESC"

Your don't have the correct OR syntax. I would use the In function.

I would write it like this

rsclubs.Source = "SELECT *  FROM entertainment  WHERE category in ('Club and Bar', 'Restaurant and Club','Restaurant, Bar and Club') ORDER BY ID DESC"

Or you can use:

rsclubs.Source = "SELECT *  FROM entertainment  WHERE category = 'Club and Bar' OR category = 'Club' OR category = 'Restaurant and Club' OR category = 'Restaurant, Bar and Club'  ORDER BY ID DESC"

Either the above or dodge20's method is syntatically (is that a word?) correct.  Dodge20's is cleaner...
