Partial String Match

Create Table

-- Create table called adventurers
CREATE TABLE adventurers (
    -- string variable
    name varchar(255),
    -- integer variable
    age int,
    -- string variable
    race varchar(255),
    -- string variable
    weapon varchar(255)

Insert Rows

-- Insert into the table adventurers
INSERT INTO adventurers (name, age, race, weapon)
VALUES ('Fjoak Doom-Wife', 28, 'Human', 'Axe'),
       ('Alooneric Cortte', 29, 'Elf', 'Bow'),
       ('Piperel Ramsay', 35, 'Elf', 'Sword'),
       ('Casimir Yardley', 14, 'Elf', 'Magic')

Retrieve Rows

%o% indicates we are matching any string that contains an o. If we wanted to only match strings that beging with Alo we would use Alo%

-- Retrieve all rows from table
SELECT * FROM adventurers
-- Where the value of weapon contains an 'o'
WHERE weapon LIKE '%o%'
