select userid, (last_name + '; ' +first_name+' ['+UPPER(userid)+']') as appr_name from zusm_approvers where general_approver = 1 and userid not in ('%USER_ID%') and (last_name+';'+first_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR last_name+'; '+first_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR last_name+';'+first_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR last_name+','+first_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR first_name+';'+last_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' OR first_name+'+ SPACE(1)'+last_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%' )  ORDER BY last_name,first_name

the above does not search by first_name SPACE last_name...

Customers should be able to type their first name followed by a space to search their name.

i have tried this:

OR first_name+'+ SPACE(1)'+last_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%'
OR first_name+' '+last_name like '%%%usersearchspec%%%'

with no luck,

Any ideas?
Thanks
