hi ...i'm using oracle's soundex function in my sql query , but the problem is that sometimes it works fine but sometimes it returns rows which i dont want ..and there is no excat pattern matching...of words..
for eg if i search for "vasant vihar" it gives me all the words starting with "v" but ideally it should giv only terms related with "vasant"
i want to use more refined search..
pls hurry up folks!!

If you are having Oracle specific problems (PL/SQL, Oracle extensions/products) and such, which it sounds like, there is a new forum here dedicated to Oracle. You might want to try there so the Oracle gurus could help.

never mind, you've cross posted
It is generally good etiquette to post in the most appropriate forum, not in as many forums as possible to get answers
