Hello Experts:

Im trying to create a function that will perform a search on a specified table and column from an Access Database.  Here is the function I have written:

Function FindString(TableName As String, ColumnName As String, Criteria As String) As Variant
Dim Rst As New ADODB.Recordset
Dim SetConn As ADODB.Connection

Set SetConn = New ADODB.Connection

With SetConn
    .ConnectionString = "Provider=Microsoft.Jet.OLEDB.4.0;Data Source=C:\website2\wsdb\Discuss.mdb;Persist Security Info=False;User ID=admin;"
    .Open SetConnString
End With

With Rst
    SqlString = "Select * From " + TableName + " Where " + ColumnName + " Like '" & Criteria & "'"
    .Open SqlString, SetConn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdText
    If Not .BOF Then
        FindString = .GetRows
    End If
End With

Rst.Close
SetConn.Close

Set Rst = Nothing
Set SetConn = Nothing

End Function

This function should produce a querystring something similiar to "Select * from TableName Where Column Like *Criteria*"

But, it doesn't seem to be working as it never returns the variant array.

Any help would be nice

Instead of:
"Select * from TableName Where Column Like *Criteria*"

Use:
"Select * from TableName Where Column Like %Criteria%"

Also, you may get better performance if you change the following line:
.Open SqlString, SetConn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic, adCmdText

To:
.Open SqlString, SetConn, adOpenForwardOnly, adReadOnly, adCmdText
