Hello,

I am working on the following code. I am having problems with the WHERE clause...This part....

WHERE [CDE Book of Business].[Policy Exec] Like (<<[Text]+>>)

Is there a operator like CONTAINS... Where it is only part of the text to look at??

Think of it like searching a customer list where the business name contains the word BAR OR Restaurant. But I do not want it hard coded. The program I use recognizes the << >> as a prompt and fills in the rest.





SELECT DISTINCTROW [CDE Book of Business].[Policy Exec], [CDE Book of Business].[Account Name], Sum([CDE Book of Business].[Total Cost]) 

AS [Sum Of Total Cost], Sum([CDE Book of Business].[Agency Commission]) AS [Sum Of Agency Commission]


FROM [CDE Book of Business]

WHERE [CDE Book of Business].[Policy Exec] Like (<<[Text]+>>)

AND

([CDE Book of Business].[Policy Status] Is Null 

OR 

[CDE Book of Business].[Policy Status] in ('Renewed', 'Rewritten' ,'Active'))



GROUP BY [CDE Book of Business].[Policy Exec], [CDE Book of Bu

Open in new window

SELECT DISTINCTROW [CDE Book of Business].[Policy Exec], [CDE Book of Business].[Account Name], Sum([CDE Book of Business].[Total Cost]) 

AS [Sum Of Total Cost], Sum([CDE Book of Business].[Agency Commission]) AS [Sum Of Agency Commission]


FROM [CDE Book of Business]

WHERE [CDE Book of Business].[Policy Exec] Like (<<[Text]+>>)

AND

([CDE Book of Business].[Policy Status] Is Null 

OR 

[CDE Book of Business].[Policy Status] in ('Renewed', 'Rewritten' ,'Active'))



GROUP BY [CDE Book of Business].[Policy Exec], [CDE Book of Bu

Maybe the InStr function would work here.  It searches for a string inside another string, and give the position where it starts if found.  Here is an example of address parsing using InStr and other string manipulation functions:

SELECT tblContactsTest.WholeAddress, Left([WholeAddress],InStr([WholeAddress],",")-1) AS Street, Mid([WholeAddress],InStr([WholeAddress],",")+1,([StatePos]-[StreetPos]-4)) AS City, Mid([WholeAddress],Len([WholeAddress])-7,2) AS State, Right([WholeAddress],5) AS Zip, InStr([WholeAddress],",")-1 AS StreetPos, Len([WholeAddress])-7 AS StatePos
FROM tblContactsTest;

This is for Access -- what program are you using?
