Hi

Please can you advise the correct syntax as neither of the queries below work. I would like to perform a regex on the results of the group_concat function

select group_concat(col) `temp` from table where temp REGEX 'test' group by id;
unknown column temp in where clause

select group_concat(col) `temp` from table where group_concat(col) REGEX 'test' group by id;
invalid use of group function

thanks

I get a syntax error for any query with

having colnname REGEX 'exp';

or

having group_concat(colname) REGEX 'exp';

after the group by clause
