MySQL Query

Posted on 2004-11-08

I have MySQL table with the listing of the file names.

When Searching for rows, with the query:
    WHERE f_name LIKE '%integral parts of%'
the result is zero rows found.

When searching for
   WHERE f_name LIKE '%integral part% of%'

it returns all the file names, containing the searched element. with
   'integral parts of'

Is the word 'parts' a special word that cannot be used in MySQL query?

At least it looks like it.
What other words cannot be used in the search?
Thank You.

    WHERE f_name LIKE '%integral parts%of%'

    my guess is that the strings in the table contain a character different from regular blank space after 'parts' (maybe a tab).
