Does anyone sees any error in this?
I tried everything, google it and still getting the same results, even when i replace the $uid with the number of the id still the same.
I have two columns friend_one and friend_two and i want to show results where neither column has the $uid
SELECT * FROM users U, friends F WHERE NOT (F.friend_two = '$uid' OR F.friend_one = '$uid') GROUP BY U.uid ORDER BY U.uid DESC

How about this?

SELECT * FROM users U, friends F WHERE '$uid' NOT IN(F.friend_two, F.friend_one) GROUP BY U.uid ORDER BY U.uid DESC

sorry for the delay Still the same diafol... And the thing is that it returns me ($uid) as well as others that it doesnt suppose to

Sorry, the only thing I can see is what diafol suggested. Perhaps using a JOIN??

To get correct result
1) I think you need to join clause to join users U, friends F
2) need to put where f.friend_two <> '$uid' and F.friend_one <> '$uid'

Did 2) alreadt urtrivedi, trying 1) now. Thanks

SELECT * FROM users U LEFT JOIN friends F ON U.uid=F.friend_one WHERE NOT (F.friend_two = '$uid' OR F.friend_one = '$uid') GROUP BY U.uid ORDER BY U.uid DESC

Did the join it doesn't appear me ($uid) anymore but still appears my friends. I am asking to return data that the F.friend_one or F.friend_two isnt $uid that means people that aren't friends with me ($uid)

try following as i suggested before

where f.friend_two <> '$uid' and F.friend_one <> '$uid'

I have try it before still doesnt work

I guess problem is in your join

LEFT JOIN friends F ON U.uid=F.friend_one

You already joing uid with freind one , with that query you willl never receive result.

can you post both sample table script and sample data here or at http://sqlfiddle.com/

You mean this right?
SELECT * FROM users U friends F ON U.uid=F.friend_one WHERE f.friend_two <> '$uid' AND F.friend_one <> '$uid' GROUP BY U.uid

sorry this
SELECT * FROM users U, friends F WHERE f.friend_two <> '$uid' AND F.friend_one <> '$uid' GROUP BY U.uid

without the ON

With this returns me as well...
SELECT * FROM users U, friends F WHERE f.friend_two <> '$uid' AND F.friend_one <> '$uid' GROUP BY U.uid ORDER BY U.uid DESC

i tried everything

DID IT ON SQL FIDDLE RETURNS SAME RESULTS AS ME

post your structure and sample data here
