I'm using the following sql statement within my program and when it gets to the set option I get incorrect systax error.

qref.sql = "Select * from rates_zones where owner_id = " & ownzip & " zip_postal_code like " & fndnum
I have an option and a text box

If this option then
     take data from text box, along with a specific owner
     find all the record that are like the text box
end if

I have a case statement to add % signs at the end of the text data

Thanks, I looked at that statment but did'nt realize I had to put the single quote. Since I'm using a variable I created a variable for the single quote and added it.

dim qtch as variant
qtch = "''
dim onech as variant
onech = "%"

within case select

fndnum = qtch + numstr + onech + qtch

Thanks again
