Question how is CONTAINS keyword used in CF?

i am passing text from a form field to a query that should search the database (ORACLE) for any match at all on the text. I am using SOUNDEX, LIKE, and = to get anything that is even close to what was searched. However, the searched db field has multiple words so when the search text is not part of the first word nothing is found. i was attempting to use the CONTAINS keyword but keep getting an error from the CF server saying that my column name is invalid. it's not.

if you have any suggestions for doing a search on a db field containing multiple words in CF PLEASE POST!! thank you.

[here is my query:

SELECT prodID_pk, prodName, prodActive
FROM products
WHERE SOUNDEX(UPPER(prodName)) = SOUNDEX('#prodSearch#')
OR UPPER(prodName) LIKE '#prodSearch#'
OR UPPER(prodName) = '#prodSearch#'
ORDER BY prodName

...where prodSearch is FORM.searchText converted to uppercase]
