problem with SQL sintax


I have the following SQL:

SELECT bbbpintura.pint, bbbpintura.serial, bbbpintura.parte, bbbpintura.lijador, bbbpintura.fecha
FROM CEDRO.dbo.bbbpintura bbbpintura
WHERE (bbbpintura.serial Like '%'?'%')

I'm triying to obtain in excel the list of rows from bbbpintura table wich serial field starts by the value in cell B1.

When I'm doing the parameter in the microsoft query I have the error: incorrect sintax near '@P1' and the query does not works.

could you help me to fix this please.?

Thank you for your time,

I suspect your where clause is wrong.

Try this:

WHERE (bbbpintura.serial Like '%' + ? + '%')
