There has to be a simple explaination for this, but I am trying to create a query using the createCriteria method that has three "OR" conditions.

e.g. Select * from table where field=x or field=y or field=z

I can do it for two driteria, but what about three??  (See code below - sepcifically the line where there is a "<------"
// create the or expressions for open transaction statuses
	        Criterion active = Restrictions.eq("xactionStatusLookup.xactionStatusId",1);
	        Criterion option = Restrictions.eq("xactionStatusLookup.xactionStatusId",2);
	        Criterion pending = Restrictions.eq("xactionStatusLookup.xactionStatusId",3);
	        LogicalExpression orExp = Restrictions.or(active,option,pending);  <---- **** THIS ONLY TAKES 2 PARAMETERS
			
			List<Xaction> results = (List<Xaction>) sessionFactory
				.getCurrentSession()
				.createCriteria("com.rre.model.Xaction")
					.add(orExp)
					.add(Expression.eq("xactionStatusLookup.xactionStatusId",2))
					.setFetchMode("contact", FetchMode.JOIN)
					.addOrder( Order.asc("propStreet") )
					.addOrder( Order.asc("propNum") )
					.list();

I believe you can put an Or expression as one of the parameters so you chain them; however, I would recommend use of IN like:

field IN (1, 2, 3)
