You can use a TQuery component to return a recordset of all the records containing the search word.


Drop an edit box a memo, a button
and a  TQuery component on a form put this statement in the SQL property

SELECT * FROM Books        (or whatever the db name is)
WHERE BookTitle LIKE :BkTitle  (assuming BookTitle is the fieldname!))

Set the DatabaseName property to the directory of the database (or alias if one is set up)

in the onclick event for the button add

Query1.ParamByName('BkTitle').AsString:= '%'+edit1.text+'%';
Query1.Prepare;
Query1.Open;
memo1.clear;
While not Query1.EOF do
   memo1.lines.add(query1.FieldByName('BookTitle').AsString);
Query1.Close;

Run the prog.
type the search word into the edit box and click the button.
