Everybody! This is important. In a few days, these forums will be moving over to using the totally sweet Discourse platform. To ensure this migration happens smoothly with no loss of content, these forums are currently in a read-only mode. I do apologize for the inconvenience.

There is never a good time to turn the forums off for an extended period of time, but I promise the new forums will be a billion times better. I'm pretty sure of it.

See you all on the other side in a few days, and if you have any (non-technical) questions, please e-mail me at kirupa@kirupa.com. For technical questions, try to find a tutorial that corresponds to what you are looking for and post in the comments section of that page.

Thread: UPPER/lower Case problem

  1. #1

    UPPER/lower Case problem


    i am making a search function for my odbc db. Everything works fine (correct results are shown, etc) except for the fact that the select sql statement looks for record of ONLY the same case:

    e.g searching "otherside" will not find the record that has "Otherside"

    Is there anyway that I can make the sql not count the fact that there are different case letters in the search box?

    It's very simple, just convert the variable to uppercase and compare with the uppercase value on the SQL, like this...

    $sql = "SELECT * FROM your_table WHERE UPPER(field) = '".strtoupper($search)."'";

    you can also do the trick with lowercase, whatever you like...
