TQuery Using Wildcards

I have a TQuery Component which upon pressing a button is sent the following code.

str:='SELECT *';
str2:='FROM Company INNER JOIN Customer ON Company.[Company No] = Customer.[Company No]';
str3:='WHERE (((Customer.[Last Name]) Like ''Sm*''));';

I have two test entries in the table one called Smith the other Smyth.

If i press the button a dbgrid linked to the table is empty, however if  i change str3 to search for Smith a the dbgrid  displays my entry.

If I change str3 to Smyth again my grid shows the correct entry

How can i get the grid to show both entries?
