query with LIKE but case sensitive


Why isn't my query case sensitive?

Select * from MyTable where name like '%Ann%'

shows record 1 correctly:

Record1= John, Ann, Jack

but shows also record 2:

Record2: Jack, Susanne, Jim


You could execute <a href="http://www.sqlite.org/pragma.html#pragma_case_sensitive_like" rel="nofollow">PRAGMA case_sensitive_like = on</a>, but this would affect all LIKEs used in your program, and disable any index optimizations for prefix searches.

A better idea would be to replace LIKE with <a href="http://www.sqlite.org/lang_expr.html#like" rel="nofollow">GLOB</a>:



[Copied from <a href="https://stackoverflow.com/a/15480401/11654" rel="nofollow">rbedger's answer</a>:]

You can use the UPPER keyword on your case insensitive field then upper-case your like statement

SELECT * FROM mytable WHERE caseSensitiveField like 'test%' AND UPPER(caseInsensitiveField) like 'G2%'


the SQL LIKE is case-insensitive(thnks to CL ) So, on some SQL implementations you <a href="http://blog.sqlauthority.com/2007/04/30/case-sensitive-sql-query-search/" rel="nofollow">can do case Sensitive SQL query Searches</a>
