I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

yes it is correct.

It will look for the word where it contains "Jon" in the Name column.

In this case you can run

SELECT Name FROM Person WHERE Name LIKE 'jon' 

Open in new window

It would work, but you need to change name at run time then below code will work

create table person (pid int identity primary key, name nvarchar(50))

insert into person (name)
values ('jon kumar')

insert into person (name)
values ('jon1 kumar')

insert into person (name)
values ('Ramjon kumar')

insert into person (name)
values ('Ram kumar')

	@Var nvarchar(100) = 'Jon'
FROM Person
WHERE name like '%' + @Var +'%'

Open in new window

Your note, database; in case you need to search in then LIKE would be good but for database; please use full text search.

Best Regards
