Case Sensitivity in Searches

Question:
How can I ignore case when trying to SELECT all records that are LIKE a certain string variable? I have an employee's name field in which the characters are a combination of lower and upper case letters. I do not want users to be concerned about case when doing searches.

Answer:
The easiest solution is to write your queries using the UPPER() function (or whatever exact syntax your product supports):

    ... WHERE UPPER(column)='NAME';
