I putting together a cosmetics ecommerce site. In the database every product has a BrandID and a CatID. I then have a page for Eyeshadows which will be CatID 6, Blushers CatID 2 etc.
I also have a category called brushes and an individual brushes page. However I also want the Eyeshadow brush to appear on the eyeshadow page but am not sure what the syntax would be for the query. My current query is:

SELECT * FROM items, itembrand, itemcategory, itemstocktypes WHERE items.ItemCatID = 6 AND items.ItemCatID=itemcategory.CatID AND items.ItemBrandID=itembrand.BrandID AND items.ItemStockID=itemstocktypes.StockID ORDER BY ItemID ASC

what can I add in to tell the database to also pull up items where ItemName contains the word 'brush' AND BrandID = 1

Do you want all needs to 1 .fullfill means ItemCatID = 6 , ItemName contanis brush , BrandID = 1

Or 2 .  Any one of them


For 1.

SELECT * FROM items, itembrand, itemcategory, itemstocktypes WHERE items.ItemCatID=itemcategory.CatID AND items.ItemBrandID=itembrand.BrandID AND items.ItemStockID=itemstocktypes.StockID  and
 items.ItemCatID = 6 AND Itemname Like'%brush%' AND itembrand.BrandID = 1
ORDER BY ItemID ASC

2 .

SELECT * FROM items, itembrand, itemcategory, itemstocktypes WHERE items.ItemCatID=itemcategory.CatID AND items.ItemBrandID=itembrand.BrandID AND items.ItemStockID=itemstocktypes.StockID and
( items.ItemCatID = 6 or Itemname Like'%brush%' or itembrand.BrandID = 1)
ORDER BY ItemID ASC

Untested but maybe cleaner:
select * from items
join itembrand on items.ItemBrandID=itembrand.BrandID
join itemcategory on items.ItemCatID=itemcategory.CatID
join itemstocktypes on items.ItemStockID=itemstocktypes.StockID
where items.ItemCatID = 6 or ( ItemName like  '%brush%') AND BrandID = 1)
order by ItemID ASC

I'm going round in circles a bit here as I realise I've got my question slightly wrong as I only want to select the brushes that relate to the specific category. I've been trying out your various suggestions and adapting but have had not joy so far - probably my adaptions are incorrect. Just to clarify therefore I want to (and excuse my syntax as I know its wrong because it doesn't work!!:

SELECT * from items  WHERE items.CatID = 6 (AND items.CatID = 16 WHERE items.ItemSKU=6)
ie select all the eyeshadows and select all the brushes that relate to the eyeshadows

Hope that makes sense. CatID 6 is eyeshadows and CatID 16 is brushes and I've put a 6 in the ItemSKU field where the brush relates to eyeshadows but it doesn't work - I think I've got my brackets in the wrong place !!!
