I have the following sql statement in my MS Studio 2008 C# project that is connected to a sql server database:

cmd.CommandText = "SELECT DISTINCT * FROM MORTGEE WHERE MORTGEE_NAME = (@MN) ORDER BY MORTGEE_NAME ";

I would like to change this to a "LIKE" statement, I.E. LIKE (@MN).

I can't figure out the code, any ideas?

Thanks,

JD

= or LIKE should both work... however, in the value of @mn that you pass you need the wildcards as needed, OR
cmd.CommandText = "SELECT DISTINCT * FROM MORTGEE WHERE MORTGEE_NAME LIKE '%' + @MN + '%' ORDER BY MORTGEE_NAME ";
