I am comparing the field in a table to one in a combo box on a form.
I can't call the function Like in the query design view. Access 2003 and 2007 is replacing the function with the call to a function called "Alike". This function does not compare strings it concatenates them.
Why am I not able to use the "Like" function in the query design view, and why do the 2 versions of access not recognize this call in the Design view of the query?
