I have  a field 'NAME' that can contain first and last names.
I would like to have a textbox that can collect a submitted last name to perform a  search....something like :

Select * FROM tblCustomers
WHERE NAME LIKE '%SMITH'
This would return all John Smith, Fred Smith and so on...

I have a stored procedure that will be referencing a textbox called 'txtNAME'. In my where statement how would the wildcard look?   NAME LIKE '%' + @NAME ? (@NAME is the declared variable)
