Querying for *

I am trying to query for the * symbol within records and am having trouble with the usual way I would do this since the * is part of like "*(some value)*" that I would usually use. Any ideas?  Thanks!

You should be able to query for [*] to find the literal asterisk instead of the wildcard.

The * is mixed in with other characters so I need the like part

What about using     *[*]*     in the Like. In the past I've written it as "*" & "[*]" & "*" to make it easier to understand later, but either should be good for what you need.
