Hi, im trying to query my database and am passing a type variable with value "Hardware", a manufacturer variable with value of "Dell and an invoice variable with value of "SI11244"

Here is the url im putting into my browser:
http://localhost:3000/assets/findbyparams?manufacturer=Dell&type=Hardware&invoice=SI11244

i have a findbyparams method in my controller but have no idea how to put these values into a find statement to return the aassets where the TYPE column equals "Hardware, the MANUFACTURER column equals "Dell" and INVOICE column equals "SI11244"

thanks

def find
  @type = params[:type]
  @manuf = params[:manufacturer]
  @invoice = params[:invoice]
  
  @assets = Asset.find_all_by_type_and_manufacturer_and_invoice(@type, @manuf, @invoice)
  @assets = Asset.find(:all, :conditions => ["type = ? and manufacturer = 
? and invoice = ?", @type, @manuf, @invoice])
end
 
# both should return the same thing
