Sorry I didn't get to this sooner.

Actually, SQLWhereItems supports placing OR in it. You also have to add in

The trick to it is, coordinating the search criteria and knowing how to
assemble it all.

I think you will need to show me a case and then I'll show you how to use
SQLWhereItems and then you can probably work to a full solution once your
understanding is in full.

Let me know.
