The % wildcard on the LIKE predicate causes non-standard behaviour.
create table test1000 (name char(10) ); insert into test1000 values ('NEW YORK'); /* The following correctly retrieves NEW YORK */ select * from test1000 where name = 'NEW YORK'; /* The following does not retrieve anything */ select * from test1000 where name like '%YORK'; /* When we append two spaces to the end, since name is defined as char(10), it retrieves NEW YORK correctly */ select * from test1000 where name like '%YORK ';
Other databases don't exhibit this behaviour. Is this a bug, or is this how it's supposed to work?
