Not entirely sure what you mean -are you talking about in a DB or with variables.

If using variables... use INSTR(SourceString, Match), ie

in instr(Target, "ThisString") <> 0 then msgbox "Found 'ThisString' in " & target

instr returns the position within the first string or the second string or 0 if there is no match, ie will return 2 if you do instr("band, "and")

Hope thats what you mean.

like condition can be expressed like this.
sSQL = "SELECT * FROM TableName where FieldName Like '%Name%'"
this would work
or if you need it to read it from a text box something like this will do
sSQL = "SELECT * FROM TableName where Name LIKE %'" & Text1.Text & "'%"

OR
LIKE '%" & Text1.Text & "%'
