Using The CAST Function In SQL To String Search Number Columns
Posted by Weston Ganger
I was working on an application and part of one of the searches needed to search numbers like a string. Normally in SQL if you search a number it will look for an exact match or less than or greater than kind of thing.
# replace 14 with your search value ... WHERE CAST(ProductID as CHAR) LIKE '%14%'
Now if you search 14, it will return entries with 14, 2014, 7814, 8881488.
