LINQ question

Dear Experts,
How do I can combine the results in this LINQ query?

c.field == 1 below generates results and c.field == 3 generates results but how can I show the list of both results together. This below generates no results.  I guess one is cancelling out the other.

var today = DateTime.Now.Date;
var tomorrow = today.AddDays(1);

var query = from c in databasetable
						  where c.date > today && c.date < tomorrow
						  && c.field == 1 
						  && c.field == 3
						  select c;
						  
query.Dump();

Try..

var today = DateTime.Now.Date;
var tomorrow = today.AddDays(1);

var query = from c in databasetable
						  where c.date > today && c.date < tomorrow
						  && ( c.field == 1 
						  || c.field == 3 )
						  select c;
						  
query.Dump();

Yes.  The && means and and c.field can't be equal to 1 and 3 and the same time.  The || (previous comment by the other expert) means or.  So it matches c.field to either 1 or 3

Thank you for your comments. I do want results from c.field == 1 and c.field == 3 (these are states in a picklist) so do I need to approach this differently, maybe by grouping the results.  The II will give me one or the other so doesn't solve my issue.  Any further help must appreciated.

On column c cannot have 2 values at the same time. It can either have 1 or 3 at the same time.  You need to create 2 queries and then perform your logic.

var today = DateTime.Now.Date;
var tomorrow = today.AddDays(1);

var query = from c in databasetable
						  where c.date > today && c.date < tomorrow
						  && ( c.field == 1 )						 
						  select c;

var query1 = from c in databasetable
						  where c.date > today && c.date < tomorrow
						  && ( c.field == 3 )						 
						  select c;
						  
query.Dump();
query1.Dump();

Using the || operator will give from both c.field=1 and c.field=3.  Which is what you want you say.
