Post your table name and fieldnames

Why does your query not have any spaces between words? Also, values should be quoted to stop MySQL treating them as table fields.

SELECT `file_title` FROM `uploads` WHERE `string_file` LIKE '%ab383292%'

here i have the following iformation for table
name => uploads
fields are in the following:
id -> primary key
uploaded_by -> varchar
string -> varchar
file_title -> varchar
file_size -> varchar
file_path -> varchar
..

Lik bb says, e.g.:

SELECT `file_title` FROM `uploads` WHERE `string` LIKE '%ab383292%'
