I am trying to search a field (Caption) in a table.
I know there is (Joey Owens) in the database.
If i type the edit box (Joey Owens) it will find that record just fine.

If i type in Joey by itself it will not find that record.
If I type in Owens by itself it will not find that record.

How can I locate that record by just useing Joey Or Owens ?
with dataModule2.SearhQuery do begin
  Close;
  SQL.Clear;
  SQL.Add('SELECT * FROM Events WHERE Caption =:Name');
  Parameters.ParamByName('Name').Value:= edit1.Text;
  Open;

Open in new window

the + and '' will depend on the sql language you are using ...
  SQL.Add('SELECT * FROM Events WHERE Caption LIKE ''%'' + :Name + ''%'' ');
