Querying Multiple Columns

Querying Multiple Columns

Updated: 17 July 2006

In Microsoft SQL Server 2005, you can use the CONTAINS predicate to query multiple columns by specifying a list of columns to search. The columns must be from the same table.

The following query searches for the term Red in the Name and Color fields of the Production.Product table.

Use AdventureWorks;
SELECT Name, Color FROM Production.Product
WHERE CONTAINS((Name, Color), 'Red');
