I conect to the database with an AdoDB.Connection object
I use AdoDB.command and AdoDb.recordset to execute my queries and to retrieve the results.
I need to search a given text into a field from a table and i need this search to be case-sensitive:

My code looks like this:

cmnd = "select DISTINCT(lege.lege_id),lege_tip.presc,Repub_den.Denumire,lege.numar,lege.data,lege_emit.nume,lege.mo,lege.data_mo from lege,lege_emit,lege_tip,Repub_Den,lege_texte where lege.tip_id=lege_tip.tip_id and lege.emitent_id=lege_emit.emitent_id and repub_den.Repub=lege.Repub and lege_texte.lege_id=lege.lege_id and lege_texte.header LIKE " & "'%" & str & "%'"

Adodc1.recordsource=cmnd
adodc1.refresh

'Where Adodc1 is an Ado Data Control

So the question is how do i find a substring in a filed in case-sensitive way in this conditions?

You might have to use the INSTR() function instead of the LIKE clause.

Select Distinct ... Where ... InStr(1, lege_texte.header ," & str & ", 2) <> 0"
