I have a simple query that selects all records from another query where 'Job Type'="P*".  When I only list one field everything works fine.  When I add additional fields (Columns) some 'Job Type'="LI" records appear.

Although I normally work in design view, I have shown the working and faulty sql below:

Works:
SELECT WO_All.WO_TYPE
FROM WO_All
WHERE (((WO_All.WO_TYPE) Like "p*"));


Faulty:
SELECT WO_All.WO_TYPE, WO_All.WO_STATUS, WO_All.REQST_DATETIME, WO_All.LAST_UPDATE
FROM WO_All
WHERE (((WO_All.WO_TYPE) Like "p*"));

I have used access for years and have never had this happen before.
Thanks in advance!
