I've run into a sticky case where my query is failing (PHP4.x/MySQL).
I have a table where the price value is imported from an external
source, so I can't change it on the fly, and they embed thousands
seperators (in my case ','). When I try to do a query such as ".. where
price <= '250000' .." if finds values that meet or exceed that value
(returns some in the range of 2,500,000. I gather that it is failing
because of the comma (the price field contains values of '2,500,000').
Is there a function that I can use to force the price format to integer
before/during the query? Or would it work if I did a number_format on
the test value? ie: '.. where price <= '200,000' ..'
Help would be appreciated.
