# 3629 DBISAM SQL Reference Operators Topic Incorrectly Describes Logical Operator Precedence

The section "Logical Operators" in the DBISAM online manual seems to be incorrect about the precedence of the AND and OR operators. Apart from being very confusing, what DBISAM does is not what is described in there, so one of them must be wrong. What DBISAM actually does is to consider:

a AND b OR c AND d
equivalent to
(a AND b) OR (c AND d)

but that's not what the manual says.
