    Hi,

    In SQLServer, there is a method called 'CONTAINS', which takes two arguments ( it check for the presence of second argument in the first argument and returns the boolean value, I am not sure of the usage and the return type/value)..

    Query is, could any guru's here help me idetifying the equivalent(in functionalities) for this method in Oracle.. again i came across a method 'CONTAINS' in Oracle too, but not sure of the functionality and the return type here.

    Any help on this will be highly appreciated.

    Regards,
    Sn
