Default "like" does not yield any results


SELECT Occupations.CompanyID, Occupations.CompanyOccupation
FROM Occupations
WHERE (((Occupations.CompanyOccupation) Like "*arm*"));

that is the sql statement i use in access

but when i programmatically use it it becomes

"SELECT Occupations.CompanyID, Occupations.CompanyOccupation
FROM Occupations
WHERE (((Occupations.CompanyOccupation) Like '*arm*'));"

but it yields no results

can you tell me why?

Default

* is fine from within Access, but ADO requires % for the wildcard, i.e.

.... Like '%arm%' ....
