an "array"?
do you have at least one table involved?
please provide us with some more details of what the database stores (e.g. a table) otherwise we are totally guessing.

Since we're guessing -
where patindex(@word,@arrayof word) > 0

what I'm understanding is

declare @str1 varchar(500)
set @str1 = 'angel,sage,master,wizard'

select charindex('master',@str1) 

Open in new window

Not sure what you mean but the result in a new array
what I'm understanding is:
Declare @word varchar(100),
             @arrayofword  varchar(1000)

select @word = 'visit' , @arrayofword = 'jason, test, visit'

select charindex(@word,@arrayofword) 

Open in new window

Selecting charindex [or patindex] (@word,@arrayofword) would produce 12 and 14 respectively for the last two offered solutions, so I think what you're looking for is more like select <whatever> where charindex((@word,@arrayofword) > 0
