This query works:
      select * from tablename

...but this query doesn't:
      if (1=1) select * from tablename

Apparently, in the second query, two results are returned, the first is empty, the second is the correct result set.  I know that I could put the IF statement directly into PHP but there are good reasons why we need them to work within the SQL statement.

Sorry, but the bug system is not the appropriate forum for asking
support questions. Your problem does not imply a bug in PHP itself.

Thank you for your interest in PHP.

This is not a support question.  The second query should work but doesn't.  It is not because the SQL is incorrect, it is because the mssql_query() function in php_mssql.dll does not process the second query correctly.

If the second query doesn't work, it's a mssql problem. 
The PHP extension just sends the query via dbcmd call to the server, which executes the query.
