combining mysql and or queries in codeigniter ¬†using -'php,mysql,codeigniter,codeigniter-2'
I want to combine AND OR mysql queries in CI. I have already seen this thread: http://codeigniter.com/forums/viewthread/92818/
But they don't provide the exact solution there.
How do I create the following query using strictly the CI framework? (I can create the query easily without the brackets but then it is not the same query.)
SELECT * FROM `Persons` WHERE
LastName='Svendson' AND Age="12" AND
(FirstName='Tove' OR FirstName='Ola' OR Gender="M" OR Country="India")
P.S.: This is just a sample query even if it makes no sense & Do not suggest writing the entire OR part of the query inside a single where().
EDIT: Basically I want the implementation of the following simple query:
SELECT * FROM `table` WHERE field1='value1' AND (field2='value2' OR field3='value3')
