wildcards in executequery

I'm using wildcards in querys, for example:

executeQuery("select * from table artikel where artikelname like '*baseball*'")

I've tested the query directly with a MS-Access-Database and everything works fine. From within java I get no columns
with my resultset. For testing I tried without wildcards

executeQuery("select * from table artikel where artikelname like 'baseball'")

and it works.

well, you have to use the % sign not the * sign example

executeQuery("select * from table artikel where artikelname like '%baseball%'")


this is because you are using the JDBC API's and not sending the SQL command directly to MS Access.  you are using JBDC-ODBC which translate it to Access command.
