How do I query parse data in parse.

Hi there I would like to query if a value exists anywhere in the table. SO for example I have a "Book" class in parse that contains book title, book author column names. How would I query to check if a value exists in any or both fields in the rows?

is this in any language? in sql you could create a case to check that column name in a certain table exists by returning 1 or 0 (true or false).

You could then you logical operators AND / OR in which ever way you wanted to include or exclude more search terms.

Simple CASE expression: 
CASE input_expression 
     WHEN when_expression THEN result_expression [ ...n ] 
     [ ELSE else_result_expression ] 
Searched CASE expression:
     WHEN Boolean_expression THEN result_expression [ ...n ] 
     [ ELSE else_result_expression ]
