Search Criteria, Multiple Fields

This code works fine, however, I can't seem to discover how to change it.  Right now, it pulls *everything from field_id127 and field_id_128 if either field_id127 or field_id_128 meet the search criteria.

WHAT I WANT to happen is, there will only be a return from a field if it matches the specific requirement, NOT IF either Or meet it. So, both may return a value if they meet the criteria, or one may only meet the criteria or maybe neither meet it and return 0.

$q = ("SELECT field_id_53, field_id_127, field_id_128 FROM exp_weblog_data WHERE
field_id_127 LIKE '%$gitcolor%' OR
field_id_128 LIKE '%$gitcolor%' OR
GROUP BY field_id_53")

I'm not too familiar with PHP

But if you need both conditions to be true, try using AND:

$q = ("SELECT field_id_53, field_id_127, field_id_128 FROM exp_weblog_data
WHERE
field_id_127 LIKE '%$gitcolor%'
AND field_id_128 LIKE '%$gitcolor%'
GROUP BY field_id_53")

rgranlund,

With respect, still looking for samples.  This issue would have been sorted days ago if you just put up some samples.

Here is another answer based on another interpretation of your requirements:

$q = ("
SELECT
field_id_53,
Case when field_id_127 LIKE '%$gitcolor%' then field_id_127 else 0 end field_id_127,
Case when field_id_128 LIKE '%$gitcolor%' then field_id_128 else 0 end field_id_128
FROM exp_weblog_data
WHERE field_id_127 LIKE '%$gitcolor%' OR field_id_128 LIKE '%$gitcolor%' OR
GROUP BY field_id_53
")
