I have an SQL statement that setup like this:

Tickets.Subject LIKE \"%value1%\"

I wish to change this so that it uses a variable called $data

Is this possible.

you should look something like this

$sql = "select * from table where tickets.subject like \"%" . $data . "%\";
or
$sql = "select * from table where tickets.subject like '%" . $data . "%'";
