Hello, I'd like someone could help me, please: I know how to make a simple query in SQLite when this query is about numbers. Ex: SELECT * FROM mytable WHERE age>5... In this case I have no problem. The thing is that I have a database of strings and I would like to make queries of two types: 1) For example, cities that starts by "NE" (NEW YORK) SELECT cityname FROM mytable WHERE ??? (cityname 'starts by' "NE") 2) The other question: cities that include a string into their names: "OR" (NEW YORK) It shoud be something like SELECT cityname FROM mytable WHERE ??? ("OR" 'into cityname') I will be very grateful for your help. Thanks for advanced.
