• SQL Text Match on Character Stream (wildcards)

    I need to match a text field on zero or more characters. If available, the 'or more' characters need to be in a specific sequence. The % wildcard doesn't quite cut it. For instance, I need to match the name with 'm', 'ma' or 'mar' (but no other character combinations). Is this possible?
