Hi:
I have the query below however even so the product is inactive in the database (active = 0) it still shows with the query below even so I require products.active = 1. Any ideas about what I am doing wrong?
SELECT * FROM products 
LEFT JOIN usertable ON usertable.idusr = products.vendorID 
LEFT JOIN products_keywords ON products_keywords.IDproducts = products.id 
WHERE products.ProdName LIKE %s OR products.ProdShortDesc LIKE %s OR products.ProdLongDesc LIKE %s OR usertable.company LIKE %s OR products_keywords.keyword2 LIKE %s AND products.active = 1

you are missing ()-;
SELECT * FROM products 
LEFT JOIN usertable ON usertable.idusr = products.vendorID 
LEFT JOIN products_keywords ON products_keywords.IDproducts = products.id 
WHERE ( products.ProdName LIKE %s OR products.ProdShortDesc LIKE %s OR products.ProdLongDesc LIKE %s OR usertable.company LIKE %s OR products_keywords.keyword2 LIKE %s)
  AND products.active = 1

angelIII is correct, your 'AND products.active' is only being connected with the 'products_keywords.keyword2 LIKE %s' therefore those 2 conditions would have to be true to make the statement true OR any of the other statements. if you do what angellll says and put the () around all of the ORs then those will do the logical OR and then REQUIRE the active as well.
