How to Search an SQL Server Database and Display Results in a Gridview

I am trying to create a web application that has a search function.

 I would like to search the database with the text that the user inputs into the TextBox and then display the results in a GridView.

I would also like to split up the value if the user where to type in multiple strings.  For Example:  "chicken sausage beef" and then search the database for those 3 separate strings..


Can anyone help me accomplish this?

I give split function.

CREATE PROCEDURE dbo.sp_Txt_Split(

    @sInputList varchar(8000) -- List of delimited items
  , @Delimiter char(1) = ',' -- delimiter that separates items, space also a delimiter, you replace ',' and put space only' '



DECLARE @Item Varchar(8000)

CREATE TABLE #List(Item varchar(8000)) -- Create a temporary table

--IF CHARINDEX(@Delimiter,@sInputList,0) <> 0
WHILE CHARINDEX(@Delimiter,@sInputList,0) <> 0

IF LEN(@Item) > 0


IF LEN(@sInputList) > 0
INSERT INTO #List SELECT @sInputList -- Put the last item in


To test the procedure:

EXEC sp_Txt_Split '1,22,333,444,,5555,666', ','


EXEC sp_Txt_Split '1#22#333#','#'

I think you're looking for the feature of SQL Server called Full Text Search.
