Hi there,

You need to select a column your trying to search a value, so for example if the column was `field1` and you wanted to search for the text "FALSE\G" your SQL query would be as attached

Kind regards
James


SELECT * FROM tbl_name WHERE `field1` = "FALSE\G"

The \G only works in the mysql client, it shows the results vertically:

The /G command is  not part of the query, but after it.

Your query does not show much, as a WHERE FALSE will return nothing.

Could you provide more info.
