To search a field for an occurrence of a string supplied through a prompt variable create a condition that uses the prompt variable input as the search string in a LOCATE function.
SELECT CUSTID, CONAME, FNAME, LNAME, CITY FROM SCDB1.CSTHDR CSTHDR WHERE LOCATE( ' ' || &coname, CONAME ) <> 0
This will return only those records where the searched field contains the string entered in the prompt reply wtih a leading space added. If the input is 'abb' it will return a record containing ' abbreviate' but not 'cabbie'.
