If I want to construct the SQL statement to find from every fields in the table in which they contain that keyword or not, how can I do it?

If I do select * from table where ...... like %keyword%,
can I create stupid query like this one ---->
select * form table where column1 like %keyword% or column2 like %keyword% ..... or column100000000 like %keyword%...... or not?

The good condition is I don't have the full-text search feature with my DB. T_T

I don't know if there is a specific query to do the same. I have a couple of alternative notions.

If it is an existing table schema you can work with, Check if you have an audit table maintained for capturing the information about every field in a single field of the audit table.
If yes, try searching on those records and get the information. [Also check if maintains only the update audit. If yes, you might lose the information about inserts.]

If it is a new schema you are creating, try writing a trigger for the same.

Iam intersted in knowing the business case, working on which you had arrived at such a point.
