I think this would work:

select * from Items where Itemcode in ('okn123', 'OKI987987', 'pop9090')

You can do it various ways like

SELECT * FROM TableName
WHERE ItemCode = 'okn123' OR ItemCode =  'OKI987987' OR ItemCode =  'pop9090'

OR

SELECT * FROM TableName
WHERE ItemCode IN ('okn123', 'OKI987987', 'pop9090')

Declare @Itemcode nvarchar(32)

Select  *  
From    tblItems
Where itemcode like @Itemcode

Here @Itemcode  is a variable by this you can send any of the item code, it will search for the required items.

if you want exact match change the where condition in above query .

Where itemcode = @Itemcode

all methods above seems to do the job, here below is just another way


SELECT *
FROM table
WHERE 
(PATINDEX('okn123', ItemCode ) > 0)
 OR 
(PATINDEX('OKI987987', ItemCode ) > 0)
or
(PATINDEX('pop9090', ItemCode ) > 0)
