Dear lists,
I have seen that many had problems in implementing a logical query string on numeric fields (on shape files, for example: select all regions with population greater than xxxxx, kind of query.) and I was experimenting hard on it. I find out the following works, which I hope will shade some light for many of you.
suppose that you want to provide a form where user selects a queryfield (query field, numeric), selects a queryoperator (0, <, >, etc) and input a value. 
So putting the query string like this works fine (assuming that you know where to put this code):
$querystring = "("."[".$queryfield."]"."".$queryoperator."".$value.")";
$qLayer->queryByAttributes($queryfield, $querystring, MS_MULTIPLE);
