Retrieving a data according to a given name

i have a table called reply which has id, name, addressi wanna retrieve
address when a given name, so can anyone
tell how can i do it.
i can retrieve data using modelname.find(anyid),but i can’t
do it for any name

I have a doubt with your table it should be replies rather than reply
coz’ table name are plural form of model name in ROR (if you stick
with convention over configuration).

Why don’t you try it out from your console. And if it work from there
than you should have some problem in your controller.
plz try it out from your console and let me know.
