How do I find all cols that are a subset of my input string, e.g., 'abcDEFghi' would return the following cols:
But not 'abcG' for instance.
POSITION(someCol, 'abcDEFghi') <> 0
crmalibu, i like how you covered all your bases by using <>0 instead of >0
you know, just in case POSITION returns a negative number
joazito, you are using SQL Server, yes?
Oracle, actually. Any way to do this in Hibernate's Query Language btw?
never heard of hibernate, but a couple of quick googles and i see it has a LOCATE() function
i couldn't find a reference manual, so you're on your own there...
OK, I'll look into it. Thank you for your assistance both of you.
