Stephane exercise great restraint in not mentioning this, but I am not feeling so restrained. :)

If you have in your power any ability to influence the design of this database to make it something that resembles normalized data, please do so.

It will save you hours of frustration in the future.

And if not, well, look forward to writing lots of horribly misshapen SQL.
