WildCard question on ASP and access

hi,
I stuck in the problem of using wildcard with ASP and Access.
I used the statment in ASP page. It doesn't return any record for me. I printed out the same statement and pasted in Access. It returns me the right recordset.

In the statement, I used "select * from table1 where table1.field1 like '*" & Request("whatever") & "*'"


Could anyone know why?

I appreciate you answer.

replace the wildcard with %

"SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE Table1.Field1 LIKE '%" & .... & "%"

* only works from within Access.
