exclude results from a query

Here is a query:

select id, status, datedone from items join statuses on items.status_id = statuses.status_id where closed = 0

I need to exclude where status_id=14 and datedone is not null

What would be a good way to go about this?

Thanks!

ooops, if you are excluding where items.datedone is not null, then verse that one criteria (include where items.datedone is null)

select id, status, datedone from items join statuses on items.status_id = statuses.status_id where closed = 0 and items.status_id != 14 and items.datedone is null

Hi!

Something like this

select id, status, datedone
from items i, statuses s
where i.status_id = s.status_id
and s.closed = 0
and i.status_id <> 14
and s.datedone is not null

Make sure that the s or i prefix is correct as I'm assuming that the columns belongs to the tables.

I am not sure why I am having trouble with this today.  Will the query pull back entries with status_id=14 and datedone is null?

I guess I just need to test this..

I went ahead and created another table to take out the join to test this.

select * from randy where closed=0 and status_id <>14 and datedone is null

This does not work the way I want it to because it does not show the rows with status=14 and datedone is null

There will be lots of rows returned, but I do not want to return the ones that have a status=14 and a datedone that is filled in.

Ah, so you only want to exclude those for status=14 and a value in datedone, but not exclude datedone if it's other than status=14. One query should do the trick:

select id, status, datedone
from items
join statuses on items.status_id = statuses.status_id
where closed = 0
and ((items.status_id = 14 and items.datedone is not null) or items.status_id <> 14)

SELECT id, status, datedone
FROM items i
    INNER JOIN statuses s ON i.status_id=s.status_id
WHERE
    closed=0
    AND NOT (i.status_id=14 AND i.datedone IS NOT NULL)
