Hey guys, I have a problem with a query I'm trying to run. I need to match two columns containing names, first column (NAME1) contains only the surname and the second column (NAME2) contains a surname and initials, with the initials turning up on either side of the surname.
NAME1: 'Bush', 'Thomas', 'Cook', 'Smith'
NAME2: 'Bush, B.B.', 'Thomas,C.' 'Cook', 'A.A. Smith'
Basically the code I'm trying only turns up complete matches and not partials. Anyone know what I'm doing wrong or how I can improve it?
where NAME1 like ('%'||NAME2||'%');
