[SOLVED] return data from part word search?


Recommended Posts

Is there any way I can return results by searching part words ?

eg I have a table with 5 columns


Id | Name | address | Phone | email


Lets say I have 3 people in this table with the following names


Smith, Stephen Michael

Wilson, Sarah Louise

Wood, Stephanie  Anne


What I want to be-able to do is search part of the name eg "steph" and get the results that contain this.

which from this example would be


Smith, Stephen Michael

Wood, Stephanie  Anne


At the moment I am returning all the results and looping through them doing a php check but I now have over 2000 people and growing fast.

any help that can be given would be appreciated
