Hi

To set a LIKE filter on a DataTable for column [Payment Type] do I use the following syntax

ds.Tables("MyTable").DefaultView.RowFilter = "(Payment Type LIKE '*x*' OR Payment Type LIKE '*x*')"

OR do I use:

ds.Tables("MyTable").DefaultView.RowFilter = "([Payment Type] LIKE '*x*' OR [Payment Type] LIKE '*x*')"

RowFilter does not like [ ] so try without those. Also, use '%x%' instead of '*x*'.


ds.Tables("MyTable").DefaultView.RowFilter = "Payment Type LIKE '%x%' OR Payment Type LIKE '%x%'"


But you may have issues on that column name.
