PHP WHERE Clause

I have the following PHP SELECT Query.  It is in CodeIgnitor format.  What I'm not certain about is in the where clause I need to add more.  
$laser_query = ee()->db->select('entry_id')
		->from('exp_matrix_data')
		->where('col_id_6401', $cw)
		->get();
		
		$laser_finder = $laser_query->result_array();
		foreach($laser_query->result_array() as $row){
   			echo $row['entry_id'].'<br />';
   		}

Open in new window


I need to add additional OR's to it, for example:
->where('col_id_6401', $cw) OR ('col_id_6401',$pw) OR (;col_id_6401, $lm)

Try if the following works for you..

->where('col_id_6401 =', $cw)
->or_where('col_id_6401=', $pw)...

Check this way,

$this->db->where("(col_id_6401=$cw  OR col_id_6401=$pw OR col_id_6401=$lm)", NULL, FALSE);

Please, no points for this: $this->db->or_where() is the right solution. Please refer to this link: https://ellislab.com/codeigniter/user-guide/database/active_record.html

It think you are wanting to use the where_in() function
https://ellislab.com/codeigniter/user-guide/database/active_record.html

$ids = array($cw, $pw, $lm);
$laser_query = ee()->db->select('entry_id')
		->from('exp_matrix_data')
		->where_in('col_id_6401', $ids)
		->get();
