Hi i have a table called hospitails. the table structure is as below
**Hospitals:-** Hospital_id Bigint name varchar(45) city_id bigint district_id bigint state_id bigint
now i need to search hospitals based on name,city_id,district_id,state_id. the query must cntain all the 4 fields.
when user does not provide any of the value all the hospitals with all the names from all the cites,districts,states has to be listed.
when user provides partial name and ignores the rest of the three fileds, it has to provide all the hospitals that starts with that name from all cities,districts,states,
when user ignores the other 3 fields and provides the city_id then all the hospitals should be listed from that city
for varchar columns if we apply 'like' then it does this kind of things but how to do this when there are bigint columns?
I need this query. please help.
