Hi there!

i'm relative new to mysql, and I'm trying the first time to realize a search engine with soundex-support (to find similar sounding words)

But I'm stuck...my problem:

I got a table with firms/concerns.

It looks like this (not exactly...):

id | companyname | adress | description | search_words ....

My problem:
The search_words - fields contains some words like "car engine tires leatherseats tuning", perhaps some more.

Is there any way to search the search_words field with soundex, or must i create another table with search_words, where every word has its own entry ?
(I guess I need to do this, but before I do i wanted to ask you if there's another/better way to do this.)

thx in advance,
greets ben
