I want to search values saved in database, I do not think it is good to retrieve all values from the database then search it.

May I know what is the best way to solve this problem.

What do you mean by search in database?

You can use WHERE Clause in SQL to search.

Get the values in a particular row using the SELECT query.

Check for the value in your code with the values retrieved from DB using the while loop.Simple.

If you are aware of the column name which hosts the value of yours, then retrieve only the values stored in that column rather than entire data in the table to reduce the overhead.
I agree. Here's the link:
