I have an access database and a table called Items, so i wrote as asp program to search for records in this table, the program manages to retrieve all records,thus when the "search all fields"button is set to on, but when its not set to on,it gives the Error:
Syntax error (missing operator) in query expression 'ItemID '%7%' Or Item_name Like '%7%''.
/9905112/FINAL PROJECT2/searchitem.asp, line 45,
thus when i want to retrieve only one record. Can u help me on this error!
Code segement is as below:
 
srchval =Replace(Request.Form("srchval"),"'","''")
srchall = Request.Form("srchall")

If srchall = "ON" Then
SQL = "Select * From Items"
Set RS = MyConn.Execute(SQL)
If RS.BOF And RS.EOF Then
    Response.Write "No Records Found."
  Else
    %>
      <p>&nbsp;</p>
      <%
      Response.Write "<center><table border=""1""><tr>"
    For i = 0 To RS.Fields.Count - 1
      Response.Write "<th>" & RS(i).name & "</th>"
    Next
    Response.Write "</tr>"
    While Not RS.EOF
      Response.Write "<tr>"
      For i = 0 To RS.Fields.Count - 1
        Response.Write "<td>" & RS(i).Value & "</td>"
      Next
      Response.Write "</tr>"
      RS.MoveNext
    Wend
    Response.Write "</table>"
  End If

Else
SQL = "Select * From Items Where ItemID '%"&srchval&"%'"
SQL = SQL & " Or Item_name Like '%"&srchval&"%'"
Set RS = MyConn.Execute(SQL)
If RS.BOF And RS.EOF Then
    Response.Write "No Records Found."
  Else
    Response.write "Item ID or Name :   "
      Response.write srchval
      %>
      <p>&nbsp;</p>
      <%
      Response.Write "<center><table border=""1""><tr>"
    For i = 0 To RS.Fields.Count - 1
      Response.Write "<th>" & RS(i).name & "</th>"
    Next
    Response.Write "</tr>"
    While Not RS.EOF
      Response.Write "<tr>"
      For i = 0 To RS.Fields.Count - 1
        Response.Write "<td>" & RS(i).Value & "</td>"
      Next
      Response.Write "</tr>"
      RS.MoveNext
    Wend
    Response.Write "</table>"
  End If
End if

Missing like operator

SQL = "Select * From Items Where ItemID '%"&srchval&"%'"     ------- In this




SQL = "Select * From Items Where ItemID like '%"&srchval&"%'"
