try changing
strSQL = "select * from Training" +
                "where EMPNO like '"+ EmpID + "'";

to

strSQL = "select * from Training" +
                "where EMPNO like '%"+ EmpID + "%'";

The % is a 'wild-card' character.

pellepCommented:
oh, you also need a space between Training and where, ie

strSQL = "select * from Training" +
               " where EMPNO like '%"+ EmpID + "%'";
