keyword search in stored procedure

We need a stored procedure that list tall he recordset with a given column containing specified keywords (please not the s:).
For example, MyTable contains the column MyMemo, and we need all the recordsets having 'john' AND 'eat' keywords. Keyword can be passed to the stored procedure thru a string like 'john,eat' with a given separator or thru xml format so we can use some request "from @xmlkeywords.nodes" stuff.
Thanks for help

you can do this:

declare @x xml, @newx varchar(1000)
set @x = '<search><val>john</val><val>eat</val></search>'

select * from tablename g
where exists(
select 1
from @x.nodes('/search/val') t(c)
where g.mymemo like '%' + c.value('.', 'varchar(100)')  + '%')
Try this.
declare @newString varchar(205)
Set @newString = '%Test%'
-- Insert statements for procedure here
select from sysobjects so join syscomments sc on = 
where sc.text like @newString
order by name
