What is your DBMS? SQL Server?

Your question is unclear, are you trying to search in SQL IDE or though code?
if through your code then what is the issue?

1 solution

You can do it in two ways-
1. Usng full text search
Refere these links to understand full text search
Full-Text Search[^]
Understanding Full-Text Indexing in SQL Server[^]
2. Using multiple conditions in WHERE clause
You may build query like -
SELECT ISBN, keywords, author_name, title
FROM YourTable
WHERE ISBN LIKE '%'+@TextToSearch+'%' OR keywords LIKE '%'+@TextToSearch+'%' OR author_name LIKE '%'+@TextToSearch+'%' OR title LIKE '%'+@TextToSearch+'%'

I would recommend to use full text search.

Hope, it helps :)
