What chars are you looking for? How does the condition looks like in SSMS?

Keep in mind that ' and " need to be escaped. E.g.

Condition := 'WHERE colname LIKE ''%:%''';

here are the string, that i am searcing for :

ACER monitor AL1512 15" 1024*768, 400:1 kontrasztarány, 350cd/m2 - használt

but on insert statement, the problem is the same.

When i'll cut the " or the :  chars, the query is working.

The database is on Mysql.

Yup, the single quotation mark is the Pascal string delimiter and the colon is the indicator for a parameter (haven't seen this either in your first post).

The single quotation mark must be doubled to be escaped. The colon needs that you set it by a string variable:

SqlStatement := 'SELECT * FROM table_name WHERE colname LIKE ( ''%":%'');';
AdoDataSet.ParamCheck := False;
AdoDataSet.CommandText := SqlStatement;
AdoDataSet..Open;

The order of ParamChek and the CommandText assignement is necessary to make it work.

here is the exact code, the double quotation is there but, still the no value for parameter 1


f_DataModule.MSHQms_fotabla_v.SQL.Text := 'select * from ms_raktar where megjegyzes like (''%ACER monitor AL1512 15" 1024*768, 400:1 kontrasztarány, 350cd/m2 - használt%'');';

f_DataModule.MSHQms_fotabla_v.ParamCheck := False;
f_DataModule.MSHQms_fotabla_v.Open;

No, take a look at my sample again.

f_DataModule.MSHQms_fotabla_v.Close; // Just in case that not.
f_DataModule.MSHQms_fotabla_v.SQL.Clear;
f_DataModule.MSHQms_fotabla_v.ParamCheck := False;
f_DataModule.MSHQms_fotabla_v.SQL.Text := 'select * from ms_raktar where megjegyzes like (''%ACER monitor AL1512 15" 1024*768, 400:1 kontrasztarány, 350cd/m2 - használt%'');';
f_DataModule.MSHQms_fotabla_v.Open;
