Hi - Can anyone recommend a tool for performing a database-wide, single entry field search, a-la Google, for SQL Server?
Thanks,

"...a-la Google, for SQL Server? "

That thing does not exists in SQL(and many other RDBMS database engines) as far as I'm aware. You would have to write code to search against each and any "text" like (char, varchar, nchar, etc) columns for the "word" or "phrase" you are looking for.
