Assuming an Access Back End you would use this criteria:

LIKE "##?09*"

>>I tried to use like*09
put the value in apostrophes:
I tried to use like '*09'

That will give you the records where the field END with 09. If you want a "contains", put the wild-card both to the left an right of 09:
... LIKE '*09*'

Finally, if that still does not work try:
... LIKE '%09%'
