Custom SQL queries

Hi!

I need the results of a custom SQL query to create a list in a view.

Thats the query:

@classes = ActiveRecord::Base.connection.execute "SELECT DISTINCT CLASS
FROM SymbolsMatch_MASTER"

And thats the part of the view:

<ul>
<% for class_name in @classes do %>
  <li>
   <a href="#"><%= class_name %></a>
  </li>
<% end %>

but @classes is always NULL here...

What am I doing wrong?

Thx

execute just executes without returning anything. If you want the
result then you want one of select_all/select_values/select_value
etc... (in this particular case select_values would do the trick)
