Wild Card Searches Question

P: n/a
I have just contracted with a firm that is using a front-end web interface
to access our sales data.

They developed it with Microsoft Dotnet, and it uses Microsoft SQL as the
database.

When I search test/note fields, they say I have to do a wild card search
*word* to pull up any records with "word" in that field. With our previous
vendor, and with many other web accessable data bases I search you usually
do not need the wild cards, you just enter the word in the field and click a
search button.

Is there some code that my vendor does not know about to allow us to do
searches for words in field without using wildcards?

Thanks, please email any responses to mailto: ne******@adelphia.net

Steve,

That depends how your vendor has implemented it and probably has created his
standard software for that.

He now has a search for exact words and for global words.

It is probably not that he cannot do it, however don't want to do it because
of his standardisation.
