Is the syntax correct for the statement below? I am not sure of the multiple usage of the 'or'.  We are checking for the existance of all possible image files.

select top 1 @filename_to_import = line from _gpg_filenames where line like '%.jpg' or '%.jpeg’ or ‘%.jfif’ or ‘%.gif’ or ‘%.giff’ or ‘%.bmp’ or ‘%.png’ or ‘%.tiff’

You have to repeat the condition.

select top 1 @filename_to_import = line from _gpg_filenames where line like '%.jpg' or line like '%.jpeg’ or line like ‘%.jfif’ or line like ‘%.gif’ or line like ‘%.giff’ or line like ‘%.bmp’ or line like ‘%.png’ or line like ‘%.tiff’
