I have an ODBC query pulling my data. One of the columns with data looks has 5 numbers, a slash (/), then 6 more numbers. I need to create criteria for both the 5 numbers before the slash and another criteria for the 6 numbers after the slash. So the data looks like this, 11111/222222. So, I need 2 criterias pulling the same column. One criteria i would put 11111, the other criteria i would put 222222. I thought i would use the function "Like", but that isn't working for some reason. I can't use criteria with Begins With or Ends With. How would i accomplish this??? Thanks!

In your query you can use the SUBSTRING() function

....
AND SUBSTRING(column, 1, 5) = '11111'
AND SUBSTRING(column, 6, 6) = '222222'
....

You should be able to use Like:

column LIKE '11111/%' OR column LIKE '%/222222'
(Have used OR as not sure if AND is correct)
