Usually to search a varchar field, this is done:

IF NOT @manufacturer IS NULL SET @manufacturer = '%' + LTRIM(RTRIM(@manufacturer)) + '%';
--use this for searching table.

Now, I have a binary field that stores an ip address called @ip.
@ip will also be binary.

How can I set this up to search it's field called ipAddress?

Thanks,

Zath

Can you post some sample data in the table? and how your @IP values might look like?

Procedure dbo.someSearch

@ip binary(4) = null
AS
BEGIN
-- clean data
--IF LTRIM(RTRIM(@ip)) = '' SET @ip= NULL;

-- set us up for the searches
--IF NOT @ipIS NULL SET @ip= '%' + LTRIM(RTRIM(@ip)) + '%';

SELECT ipAddress FROM someTable WHERE ipAddress LIKE @ip

the commented out lines above is where I'm not sure how to set this up to search a binary field using a binary.

Since you are passing in an IP address, why wouldn't this work?
SELECT ipAddress FROM someTable WHERE ipAddress = @ip
