More clearly:
FilterInfo = "'" & 123 & "'"
Data1.RecordSource = "SELECT * FROM Customer WHERE AccountNo LIKE " & FilterInfo

Also, what database are you using?  If it's access, the %'s from the earlier comment should be astericks.

Kamall: Sorry, I can't give the points to you.
1) The source code gives error, b'cos of the wrong SQL command.
You need the ' after the LIKE
eg. Just like the one in my example.

Hi dhuang,
Try the following:

dim rs as recordset
set rs = db.openrecordset("select * from [Customer] where [AccountNo] like '%" & filterInfo & "%'" , dbopensnapshot, dbsqlpassthrough)
set data1.recordset = rs

(db is your database)

NB. If you are using the Access, use the * instead of the % for matching.
