I am trying to write the sql for an advanced filter but not sure how to write the table/field for accessing the cb_foodtype that is the same as the
Is this possible. if so it will save my writing about 50 individual lists.
Here is my lame attempt. I realise that there are might be some syntax errors also but not too sure of the syntax required.

cb_foodtype LIKE ( SELECT `name` FROM `#__menu`)

Thanks in advance for the assistance.

The below should work fine I suppose, but you've no WHERE attribute so it's not very defined. You've also posted in CB 1.2.2 boards, please upgrade to CB 1.2.3.

'[cb_foodtype]' LIKE ( SELECT `name` FROM `#__menu` LIMIT 1 )

Syntax is the same as any query. Test within phpmyadmin. Example of the above tested in phpmyadmin as follows.

'fruit' LIKE ( SELECT `name` FROM `jos_menu` LIMIT 1 )

The limit is required because your query will contain more then 1 row and won't work. I recommend the following documentation for more MYSQL usage information.
