  • A Quick Reference Card you can take away from the course.


After completing this course you will be able to:

  • Use complex criteria in queries.
  • Work with the And, Or, and In operators.

Before you begin

The fourth course in this series explained how to use mathematical functions and create calculated fields in your queries. This course shows you how to use three logical operators — AND, OR, and IN.

You use them to create complex criteria and retrieve data that matches more than one condition. For example, do you need to find the sales representatives who work in the London office AND report to a given manager? How about finding all the customers IN France, Belgium, OR Germany?

This course explains how to use complex conditions with logical operators to return those kinds of results.
