I have a table that has a field named "Keywords".  In the table are two records so far.  In the keyword field one record has "Baseball".  The other record has "Football Baseball".  Then I am designing a query and the criteria is:

Like "*" & [Forms]![frmSearchByKeyword]![txtKeyword] & "*"

And I have a "Search" form with a field named txtKeyword.

But for some reason when I enter "Baseball" in the text field and run the query I get only the record that has "Football Baseball".   The query does not return the record ALSO that has "Baseball".

What is wrong with this?
