Using Restrictions in the CRM Query Builder

The CRM query builder won’t allow you to do everything you can do in SQL, but you can get close.

Here are some of the common issues encountered when creating a CRM Query.

How do I say not equal to, ‘<>’ will not work?

This is correct, the CRM FetchXML won’t accept  <>. It will accept !=  so you will want your query to look like the one below.

Using multiple ‘Or’ statements are not being grouped correctly.

Here is a picture of the incorrect way to use multiple ‘Or’ statements.

This method won’t work, because the SQL statement will be put together as:

SELECT account.*, account.address1_shippingmethodcode,
FROM account
WHERE (account.address1_shippingmethodcode = 1 AND
  account.address1_addresstypecode = ‘Primary’) OR
  (account.address1_shippingmethodcode = 2 AND account.address1_addresstypecode
  = ‘Secondary’)

Notice that the 1 is only with Primary, and the 2 is only with Secondary. I want the statement to look like this:

SELECT account.*, account.address1_shippingmethodcode,
FROM account
WHERE (account.address1_shippingmethodcode = 1 OR
account.address1_shippingmethodcode = 2) AND
  (account.address1_addresstypecode = ‘Primary’ OR
account.address1_addresstypecode = ‘Secondary’)

Here is how you enter multiple ‘Or’ statements in the query builder.
