As per the above, when you are creating SQL statements in access you are not using TransactSQL, but JetSQL .. the % operator becomes *.

There are some differences between the two, so well worth checking for other statments you create, if they do error.

Full statement you need:

"SELECT * FROM emp WHERE emp_name LIKE 'tom*'"

or to use a variable:

"SELECT * FROM emp WHERE emp_name LIKE '*" & strVariable & "*'"
