I need to be able to search for keywords in an MS SQL database which I'm able to do except the keywords are encapsulated in brackets which I would like to include in my search. For example, here is how I'm doing it now...
$sqlquery="SELECT * FROM HISTORY WHERE DESCRIPT LIKE '%$wo_id%';";
where wo_id is the keyword I'm searching for. The problem with this is, the number could come up in the results from a row that I don't want to include. The problem I have run into is the table the data is stored in doesn't have a column for the id number. The number is in the description like this . How do I do the above code but also include the brackets. I've tried escaping them or setting them in a variable first but it isn't working for me.
