SQL query - column like column

Last Modified: 2012-05-10
i have two tables adn i want to do something like this

where col1 like col2

unfortunately this doesn't work as intended.
so lets say col2 is 1000 and col1 is 1000, 1002
this will not return any result

what i would want to do is return that row since col2 (1000) is like col1 (1000, 1002)

thanks in advance
