My strSQL1 code below had = for
(dbo.Artists.artistname = '"& searchWord&"') OR (dbo.Recordings.RecordingTitle = '"& searchWord&"') OR (dbo.Tracks.TrackTitle = '"& searchWord&"')"

changed to LIKE

(dbo.Artists.artistname Like '"& searchWord&"') OR (dbo.Recordings.RecordingTitle Like '"& searchWord&"') OR (dbo.Tracks.TrackTitle Like '"& searchWord&"')"

Now I can do searches with having the exact name

I use to have to type The Beatles in the search box

Now I can type %Beatles% in the search box


I would like the users to not have to type %Beatles%
Can I place this on the query code line in my ASP code below?

I tried adding it to the code but it failed every time with syntax error.

On my SQL server I wrote a query that works great but I guess the ASP syntax is slightly different.

<%
dim searchWord
searchWord = Request.Querystring("song") 
Set oConn=Server.CreateObject("ADODB.Connection") 

oConn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;Persist Security Info=True;User ID=xxxxx;Password=xxxxxxx;Initial Catalog=Music;Network Library=DBMSSOCN;Data Source=xxx.xxx.xxx.xxx,1433"

strSQL1 = "SELECT dbo.Artists.artistname, dbo.Recordings.RecordingTitle, dbo.Tracks.TrackTitle, dbo.Tracks.TrackFileName FROM  dbo.Artists INNER JOIN dbo.Recordings ON dbo.Artists.artistid = dbo.Recordings.ArtistID INNER JOIN dbo.Tracks ON dbo.Recordings.RecordingID = dbo.Tracks.RecordingID WHERE     (dbo.Artists.artistname Like '"& searchWord&"') OR (dbo.Recordings.RecordingTitle Like '"& searchWord&"') OR (dbo.Tracks.TrackTitle Like '"& searchWord&"')"

Set oRs1=oConn.Execute(strSQL1,lngRecs,1)

if not oRs1.eof then
    do until oRs1.eof
       response.write "<div class=""results""><input type=""checkbox"" name=""selectItem"" value="""&oRs1("TrackFileName")&"""> "&oRs1("artistname")&" "&oRs1("RecordingTitle")&" "&oRs1("TrackTitle")&" "&oRs1("TrackFileName")&"</div>"
    oRs1.movenext
    loop
end if
%>
