    Unanswered: MySQL regexp question

    Hello, there!

    I have such question. I have a number of string type fields in a MysQL table. I'd like to test such approach. When I form a query for this table I need to find all of search words in few fields (ie, they named ProgramName, ProgramDescr, CompanyName). I need to use MySQL regular expressions and I need to get such result: I need to form something like that:
    select * from table1
    where (((ProgramName like '%keyword1%') and
     (ProgramName like '%keyword2%') and 
    (ProgramName like '%keyword3%')) or 
    ((CompanyName like '%keyword1%') and 
    (CompanyName like '%keyword2%') and 
    (CompanyName like '%keyword3%')) or 
    ((ProgramDescr like '%keyword1%') and 
    (ProgramDescr like '%keyword2%') and 
    (ProgramDescr like '%keyword3%')))
    but using MySQL ergexp. I need to form a query condition more universal.

    By the way, will be such approach (using regular expressions) faster than "like" using?

    Thanks for any suggestions in advance.

    To be more understandable, I'd like to get the next:
    I need to compose such regexp condition taking a comparison with "AND": ProgramName = (keyword1 AND keyword2 AND keyword3).

    Hope you get all I meant .
