Using Query in Ttable
how can i get ALL records having:

*Partial Match at the beginning
*Exact Match
*Partial Match anywhere

and

*case sensitive or not case sensitive.

Example.

(thefield >= 'Ant%') and (thefield <= 'Cat%')

when should i use "Like" and the logical operators like
"=",">=","<>"....?

use the % delimiter.  Example select * from users where lastname like '%mit%' would return smith,mithos,smithers.  Remove either the first or trailing % sign to eliminate partial matches in front of or behind.

? is this the answer

to girlswants me

like use with a single compare like
afield like 'abc%'

instead of >=,<= for a range use
afield between 'a%' and 'b%'

for caseinsensitive use
upper(afield) like upper('abc%')

upper (or similar function)
must be supported by your database
