SQL filtering issue

My WHERE clause in my query must have faulty logic.

WHERE (rems.project.hidden = 0) AND (NOT (rems.jobsalesexti.prodcode IN ('0000Base', 'ELEVA', 'ELEVB', 'ELEVC', 'EXTCOL'))) AND (rems.jobsalesexts.paycode = '') OR
               (rems.jobsalesexts.paycode = 'Draw 1')

Open in new window


The second part of my filter works but the first part is ignored. Is there a way to structure this so that I can get the desired result?

If your desire is not to bring back all paycodes equal to Draw 1, then place parentheses around the two paycode filters:
AND ((rems.jobsalesexts.paycode = '') OR (rems.jobsalesexts.paycode = 'Draw 1'))

Right now the issue is that the filter expression with the OR operator is working but the prodcode IN () is being ignored. Do you see any reason why the filter expression as a whole would not work?
