Altering Query to include another call

Hi everyone,

I have a call on the DB using PHPfox variables. We want to alter this slightly in the WHERE clause so that it only selects events from the db with an id of 1,5 and 7.

Also we would like to display events that are 15 before the start time. (the end time is fine the way it is)

Could someone let me know the best way to do this?

Thanks,

D

It's helpful to post your existing query.  

In your WHERE clause you can use IN to test for the events, like

WHERE event IN (1, 5, 7)

As for displaying events "15 before the start time" first, 15 what -- seconds minutes hours days? And second what are we comparing the start time to (the current date/time?  Some as-of date?)  

You can do

WHERE start_date - INTERVAL 15 MINUTE >= Your_DateTime AND end_date <= Your_DateTime

or something along those lines, or use the DATE_ADD() function similarly like

WHERE DATE_ADD(start_date, INTERVAL 15 MINUTE) >= Your_DateTime

I'm sorry kmslogic, I forgot to post it. Here is it :

			$aRows = $dbase->select('e.image_path, e.time_stamp, e.start_time, e.end_time, e.location, e.event_id, e.title, e.server_id, '.Phpfox::getUserField())
				->from(Phpfox::getT('event'),'e')
				->join(Phpfox::getT('user'),'u','u.user_id = e.user_id')
				->where('e.start_time <= '.(PHPFOX_TIME).' AND e.end_time >= '.(PHPFOX_TIME))
				->limit(4)				
				->order('e.time_stamp DESC')
				->execute('getRows');

Try this (assuming start_time is a datetime field):

->where('e.start_time - INTERVAL 15 SECOND <= '.(PHPFOX_TIME).' AND e.end_time >= '.(PHPFOX_TIME).' AND e.event_id IN (1,5,7))'

sorry kmslogic, I forgot to mention it is 15 minutes before the start time rather than 15 seconds.

so change the word SECOND to MINUTE

where('e.start_time - INTERVAL 15 MINUTE <= '.(PHPFOX_TIME).' AND e.end_time >= '.(PHPFOX_TIME).' AND e.event_id IN (1,5,7))'

I'm sorry for the delay in getting back to you kmslogic. We are still testing this and waiting for another issue to be resolved before we can test it properly. I will get back to you as soon as possible.
