Not equal to query

Hi Champs,

Hanging out with a problem…
I can find out the name of cities with City.find(:all)…
I can find out the Bangalore city with City.find_by_name(“Bangalore”).
But what query i have to write to find the name of all cities except
“Bangalore” ?

I tried this but of no use … City.find(:all, :conditions => { :name !=
“Bangalore” })

Can you people push me into the right direction.

  • Cheers

City.find(:all, :conditions => [ “name != ‘Bangalore’”] )

selected_city must be variable.

Try the following:

City.find( :all, :conditions => [ “name != selected_city” ] )

or

City.find(:all, :conditions => [ “name != ?”, selected_city ] )

“Bangalore” })
