I have a list called wraps with 12 items, no matter what I search using the following query, it always returns me the 12 items, so its not working correctly.

I debugged and the variable tag is OK.

  SPSite site = SPContext.Current.Site;
                // get the list
                SPList lstTagList = site.RootWeb.Lists.TryGetList("Wraps");
                if (lstTagList != null)
                {
                    // Try to find the item I want
                    SPQuery query = new SPQuery();
                    query.Query = "<Query><Where><Contains><FieldRef Name='Agenda_x0020_Tags' /><Value Type='Text'>" + tag + "</Value></Contains></Where></Query>";
                    SPListItemCollection foundItems = lstTagList.GetItems(query);
                    DataView dv = new DataView(foundItems.GetDataTable());
                    PagedDataSource page = new PagedDataSource();
                    page.AllowCustomPaging = true;
                    page.AllowPaging = true;
                    page.DataSource = dv;
                    page.PageSize = 10;
                   
                    WrapsRepeater.DataSource = page;
                    WrapsRepeater.DataBind();

navdeep maybe read the question?

Luis you are probably using the querybuilder of U2U. You need to remove the <query> tags from your query.
