In Oracle 9 I could use the LIKE operator on CLOB objects, but it doesn't seems to work in Oracle 8.

Is there an alternative way to do it in Oracle 8 ?

example: select * from article where bodyText LIKE '%TEST%'

that's right, in Oracle8i you have to use dbms_lob package.


SQL> SELECT * FROM A WHERE dbms_lob.instr(<column>,'<search_string>',1,1)>0;

hope this helps

That helped a lot. Could you make it case-INsensitive too?

I guess you can do it by adding another layer of function like upper() or lower() like this:

SELECT * FROM A WHERE dbms_lob.instr(upper(<column>),upper('<search_string>'),1,1)>0;
