Using a numbered parameter (such as ?4) more than once in an SQL statement

Can a numbered parameter be used more than once in an SQL statement, such as: select * from mytable where id1=?1 and id2=?1 and ... I had a feeling I'd read somewhere that this works, but I can't find it now. I'd like to know that it's "works as intended and guaranteed", rather than "happens to work in this version but no promises for future versions". Thanks for an insight.

It works as intended. And I don't at the moment know where I might clarify that point in the documentation.

Ah thanks. I read that page earlier, but missed that sentence. Must be "Lockdown leads to soggy brain" syndrome.

On an unrelated note, when I mentioned this on the Xojo User Forum, the spell checker decided that you are, in reality, Richard Hippogriffs.
