I have a problem with retrieving a record set. I have a query that works in access

SELECT * FROM Employees WHERE Address Like '*d*';

But when I try to use this in java I don't retrieve any results. The problem is with the asterisks as if i leave them out the query will work.

I need the asterisks left in though
Can any one help me out here??

This is because it's not standard SQL syntax. Try:


SELECT * FROM Employees WHERE Address Like '%d%';

It might even work in Access!
