Experts,

I want to write some code in an on exit event procedure that if my field "Job" has an ending of NCR it will change a check box "Closed" to true. I know the * can be used but I'm confused how to call it out. Something like this:

If Me.Job = Me.[Job] "*NCR" Then Me.Closed = True

Any help is always appreciated
