    Access database replace characters

    Hi i have access database and i want to search it through my web page but the problem is that I cannot use the character replace (*) for replacing one, more or zero characters. I also tried with % from SQL but doesn't work. Can you help with this?

    Best regards, Lallo

    The * should work for Jet (Access).
    Are you getting an error, or just incorrect matches?
    Is this a string (text) field, a number, or date?
    What was the exact query, including any single/double quotes?

    If this post contains any code, I may or may not have tested it. It's probably just example code, so no getting knickers in a bunch over a typo, OK? If it doesn't have basic error checking in it, such as object detection or checking if objects are null before using them, put that in there. I'm giving examples, not typing up your whole app for you. You run code at your own risk.
