Thread: UPPER/lower Case problem

    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...
