Q

A better way to search

Is there a better/faster way to search a table for a string other than like '%something%'? Using MSDE on laptops and having to search 48K records, then joined to another table is taking 2-3 seconds to return results.

Yes, this is what FullText search is designed to do. Search on FullText in SQL Server Books Online.
