Using LIKE in SQL to compare Money type field to a string


i have the following sql statement
" select bla bla bla...... where  Price  " like '%" & Request.form("selectvalue") & "%'"  

This sql statement works Ok in ACCESS but in SQL 2000 i get the following error

Microsoft OLE DB Provider for ODBC Drivers error '80040e14'

[Microsoft][ODBC SQL Server Driver][SQL Server]Implicit conversion from data type money to varchar is not allowed. Use the CONVERT function to run this query.

Any idea how to fix that ?

" select bla bla bla...... where  CONVERT(VARCHAR(20), Price)  " like '%" & Request.form("selectvalue") & "%'"  
or like this (shorter but does exactly the same)

" select bla bla bla...... where  CAST(Price as VARCHAR)  " like '%" & Request.form("selectvalue") & "%'"
