Q

Performing string searches on CLOB files

Can you perform string searches on CLOB files (i.e., search on specific words or other information)?
About the best you can do for CLOB fields is to use the DBMS_LOB supplied PL/SQL package. With the DBMS_LOB.INSTR function, you should be able to create some limited searching on CLOB fields.
