Here's the function:

protected function generateSearchSql(array $fields,array $searchterms, array $select = null, $where = null, $orderby = 'hits desc', $strict = true){
	  
	$ud = setUserData();
	$the_client_code=$ud['filter']['clientcode'];
    
    if($select === null){
        $select = $fields;
    }

    $selectsql = pfsql::getSelect($select);

    $sql = "
    select a.* from
    (
        $selectsql

        , (";

    $firstterm = true;
    foreach($searchterms as $term){
        if($firstterm) $firstterm = false;
        else if($strict) $sql .= ") * (";
        else $sql .= ") + (";


        $first = true;
        //Search each field for each term
        foreach($fields as $field) {
            //Prepend plus
            if($first) $first = false;
            else $sql .= " + ";

            $sql .= " (case when $field like ('%$term%') then 1 else 0 end) ";

        }
    }

    if($where){
        $wheresql = $where;
    }

    $sql .= ") as hits from 
        account (nolock)
            join patient (nolock) on patient.accountid = account.accountid
            join practice (nolock) on account.practiceid = practice.PracticeID
            join client (nolock) on practice.clientid = client.clientid
			LEFT JOIN (SELECT TOP 1 ChargeGroup.AccountID, ChargeGroup.encountercode FROM ChargeGroup (nolock) 
			where 
			ChargeGroup.encountercode='$term'
			AND
			ChargeGroup.clientcode=$the_client_code) b 
			ON Account.AccountID=b.AccountID
        $wheresql
        ) a
    where hits > 0
    order by ". ($orderby ? "$orderby" :" hits desc "). "
    ";
	//echo $sql;
    return $sql;

  }

At the very top is setUserData. What is that? There's no function called that anywhere in the code. I'm missing something...

What is it?

Not sure if it makes any difference, but I'm working in Code Igniter.

That is a custom function it must be defined somewhere in the code base.

In CodeIgniter, userdata() ia method to access values stored in the $_SESSION array, but it doesn't exist a method setUserData(). So I think setUserData() is a custom function created by the author of the code to manage some common session related actions. You should go through included scripts in current page to find it.
