I have a search form that I've created, but I've discovered a slight problem.  My search form has combo boxes that lists all the different records for every field within a table.  One of the combo boxes has facility names and that's where I'm having troubles.  There is probably around 200 facilities in this field.  Some of these facility names have '#' signs in them, such as MTS #3.  Now I just discovered that queries will not accept # sign within it's criteria expression.  My SQL statement for the search is like this:

SELECT * FROM MTR_Table Where Facility LIKE '*MTS #3*'

Is there a way to modify my code to accomodate the # sign?  Any suggestions?  Thanks.
