contains the word "APPLE" but there is something wrong with my syntax below

Select * From Food Where [Food_Description] LIKE '*APPLE*' OR [Food_Description] LIKE '*APPLE*'

Ay the end of it I want the user to be able to enter any letter combination

Use percent symbols:

Select * From Food Where [Food_Description] LIKE '%APPLE%'

Open in new window


Stars work in Access. SQL Server uses percent symbols.
