Searching a Database for a Keyword

Question:

When setting up a recordset, is it possible to get a record when the field contains more than the word that I'm looking for and where the words are in no particular order?

For example:

StrName = 'Direct'
	RSShops = Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Recordset")
	strSql = "SELECT * FROM Shops WHERE Name = 
        '" & StrName & "'
Can I get the recordset to contain any shop/company with 'direct' in it's name?

Answer:

Instead of using the Equal to (=) operator, use the LIKE operator in your SQL Statement.

To hunt for Shops with names that have the word 'direct' in them, your SQL statement would look like this:

SELECT * FROM Shops WHERE Name LIKE '%direct%'
You can thus modify your code accordingly.
