i'm using sql to query the match of  the input name
if the name contain the string of the input name
the record will be keep in the recordset and display in flexgrid
the problem is how the sql statement will look like
the sql are
sSql = "SELECT * FROM Makpel" & _
       " WHERE Makpel.nama = " & _
       Chr(34) & nama_s & Chr(34) & _
       " OR Makpel.nomatriks = " & _
       Chr(34) & nomatriks_s & Chr(34) & _
       " OR Makpel.alamatsemasa = " & _
       Chr(34) & alamat_s & Chr(34) & _
       " OR Makpel.namawaris = " & _
       Chr(34) & namawaris_s & Chr(34) & _
       " ORDER BY nama;"
Set daorst = daodb.OpenRecordset(sSql)

You can use the Like is SQL clause as well:
"SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE Name Like 'bil*'"
