Default Articles/Books on creating a database driven search box in asp.net

I have created a search box using LIKE "%" + [QueryString] + "%" however this is not powerful enough cuz it only good for one word searches, lets say I have "How are you doing today" stored in my database, a search with "How doing" will return ZERO results although we have that word, also if I type "doin today" without the "g" for "doing" I get zero results....

So do you know how to create a powerful Search Box?? Thanks

Hi there,

Since this is not related to the book directly, may I suggest you post this in a general ASP.NET 4.5 category here: http://p2p.wrox.com/asp-net-4-5-709/

This way, it'll be easier for others to join and learn from the discussion.
