I'm having trouble zeroing in on the correct format for a select query with multiple criteria. I currently have the following statement:
sql = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM memberLogin WHERE (((memberLogin.memberID) = '" & memID & "'));"

Open in new window

I need to add a second criteria.

this should get you going:

sql = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM memberLogin WHERE memberLogin.memberID = '" & memID & "' or memberLogin.memberID = 100 or memberLogin.memberID = 101;"

i removed some of the parenthesis as you did not need them

if you want to use variables, simply change it to:

sql = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM memberLogin WHERE memberLogin.memberID = '" & memID & "' or memberLogin.memberID = '" & memID2 & "' or memberLogin.memberID = '" & memID3 & "';"

of course, you'll want to sanitize the data before using it, as someone can easily do a sql injection. but this should get you started

I get a little confused with all the & and apostrophes. Here is what I want to do:
sql = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM memberLogin WHERE (memberLogin.memberID = '" & memID & "' and memberLogin.provider = '" & social_provider & "')"

Open in new window

Have I coded the second criteria correctly?

Assuming that MemberID and Provider are both strings, Yes.

I would have assumed that MemberID would be numeric.  If that is the case, then you should use:

sql = "SELECT COUNT(*) FROM memberLogin " _
     & "WHERE memberLogin.memberID = " & memID _
     & " AND memberLogin.provider = '" & social_provider & "'"

I've removed the extra set of ( ) around the arguments inside the WHERE clause, those are not needed.

Slegy,

Don't forget the ";" at the end.
I also like to capitalize the "AND" (or "OR") just like Dale did. It helps to avoid confusion.
