I'm looking to get a certain set of data from my list using the listdata.svc service with AJAX. The problem is inside the list I have folders, and I'd like to only receive elements inside a certain folder.

The list looks like this:

myList //list
    --> Folder001 //folder
        --> Item01 //listitem
        --> Item02 //listitem
        --> Item03 //listitem
    --> Folder002 //folder
        --> Item01 //listitem
        --> Item02 //listitem

So far I've found that I can add the attribute ?$filter= to the address but can't figure out how to use it to my advantage.

I see that each element has a "Path" value which ends with the folder. How would I go about only retreiving those entries from list whose "Path" attribute ends with a certain value, say "Folder0001"?

You can use $filter query string and a property called "Path" like

/_vti_bin/Listdata.svc/myList()?$filter=endswith(Path, 'Folder001')

to get only the items from the Folder001
