MySQL Query instead of PHP If/Else

SITUATION:
After the user has selected the country "US" - they are then going to select a state (Example; NY) and SUBMIT - DB / PHP displays output.

I need either PHP or MySQL to parse out only the records that qualify: US + NY

Here is the Country query that I'm using:
SELECT * FROM dealers WHERE Country = 'US'

Open in new window

table: dealers
columns:
id
Dealer
Phone
City
State
Country

Obviously, I could use a php IF/ELSE to only display the selected State records.

Instead, I'm hoping there's a way to edit the query listed above to handle this.

Yes, I am a MySQL newbie.


Thanks.

This will display records with US + NY

SELECT * FROM dealers WHERE Country = 'US' and City = 'NY'

@santoshmotwani  ... thanks also.

FYI:  The BACKTICKS are not always necessary (at least in the testing that I completed).
