Sorry if the title is vague. I couldn't think of a better way to describe
what I'm trying to do.

I have a table that has the following five fields:

COMMENT_SYS_ID,
ASSET_ID,
WORKER_NAME,
COMMENT_DATE,
COMMENT

I want to know what all ASSET_ID's have comments
from both '%JIM'%' and '%NANCY%'. How to do this easily?

What database?  This was posted in three different zones.

In Oracle and probably some of the others:

select asset_id from table where comment is not null and worker_name like '%JIM%'
intersect
select asset_id from table where comment is not null and worker_name like '%NANCY%'

may not be the most efficient but should be portable to just about any SQL based platform


select asset_id from yourtable
where worker_name like '%JIM%'
and asset_id in (select asset_id from yourtable where worker_name like '%NANCY%')
