Restrict Method in Outlook

I am using the restrict method as follows....

 Set olRestrictedItems = olFolder.Items.Restrict("[Subject] = ""Call Completion Analysis - Global Summary - Huggies (Created by Dan Neubauer)""")

Is there a way to restrict using wild cards or something.  I really just need to restrict based on the string "Call Completion Analysis".  However, the subject field will containt longer and differing strings in each email.

Thx.

The Like is not a word that works.  Is not a vb keyword or an operator that works with this method.  Thanks for the idea.

Have you tried this:
Set olRestrictedItems = olFolder.Items.Restrict("[Subject] = ""Call Completion Analysis*""")
I found this in a cd I have, when I look up restrict it refers me to find:
object.Find(Name, Custom)

object   Required. An expression that returns a UserProperties object.

Filter   Required String. An expression that will evaluate to True or False.

The filter is a string expression containing one or more filter clauses joined by the logical operators And, Not, and Or.

A filter clause is a simple expression that evaluates to True or False; for example, [CompanyName] = "Microsoft".

Note that property names can be used in the expression and are identified and delimited by square brackets. Except for these bracketed property names, only literals are allowed within the expression ? variables and constants are not evaluated.

Comparison operators allowed within the filter expression include >, <, >=, <=, = and <>.

Logical operators allowed are And, Not and Or.

I'll keep looking, dont lose hope yet.
