subject: SQL "like" from a subselect
I'm trying to match employee names (first or last) to text in the user
profile. ?It's just a rough match to help operations in a task.
I have all the first & last names in a file and the user profile info in
I've tried "where lower(UPTEXT) like (select srchname from namefile)" but
it fails with SQL0811 "Result of SELECT more than one row".
The search names are in the form of "%roger%". ?I can match singles in
I can whip up an RPG with %scan() but curious if?I can?make the subselect
work. ?There are hundreds of profiles and thousands of employees.
Thanks in advance.
