SQL Statement

Posted on 2014-08-14

I'd like to do a sql (MySQL) query where I can compare one numeric field with the sum of 5 other numeric fields.

Specifically, like:

SELECT * from table where table.a + table.b + table.c + table.d + table.e <> table.f

Can this be done & what is the right syntax?
