 WHERE [Name] LIKE 'S*'   works in my Access 2000 database
in VB6 + ADO 2.1 it returns empty recordset, but if I modifie SQL to
WHERE [Name] LIKE 'SecurID' it works fine
what is the issue with * over here
Sincerely,
Matt

when placing a * it should search all records beging with S its like a wild charecter, try placing the %% sometimes. something like this
LIKE '%S%'

I agree % is the db wild card of choice
* is used less frequently - and "Thats my final answer Regis"
