    Instead of books with titles containing “SQL” and authored by Celko, suppose the end user wants a list of books with “SQL” in the title or where Celko is the author. In this situation we place the criteria on separate lines. MS Access ORs the criteria; a row is selected for the result set if either or both of the criteria are true for a row.

    Criteria on different criteria lines are ORed.
    Figure \(\PageIndex{1}\): Criteria on different criteria lines are ORed.

    Exercises

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{1}\)

    List the titles of books where the author name ends with “Celko”.

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{2}\)

    List the titles of books where the author name ends with “Celko” and the text “data” appears in the title.

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{3}\)

    List the titles of books where the author name ends with “Celko” or the text “data” appears in the title.

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{4}\)

    List titles of books where the title contains the word “medieval”.

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{5}\)

    List the titles of books where the title contains the words “medicine” and “medieval”.

    Exercise \(\PageIndex{6}\)

    List the titles of books where the title contains the words “medicine” or “medieval”.
