ASP search engine estimate

Discussion in 'C#' started by kray, Mar 15, 2011.

    I'm just curious about how much a ASP programmer would charge to fix a search engine to include result options that are "any word match" and exact match.

    The engine is already setup but only returns exact matches.

    Thanks

    Depends on your database and the complication for the search results required

    use a simple asp query as

    Select * from tblData where col1 like '%partdata%'

    Using % always does wild card searches.

    Yeah Thank you for that reply. So what I gather it's a fairly small piece(s) of code that would need to be implemented right?

    I'm just trying to figure out how much it would cost to get something like this done. I'm all about being prepared. :cool:

    The above is an over simplistic answer that doesn't actually match your requirements, it would give you the results of matching anything that contains the exact phrase rather than anything that matches some or all of the individual words irrespective of order etc.

    It isn't an overly complex thing to do, and there used to be scripts that will help do it too, as generally you want to remove any minor words like "the" or "a" etc
