I wear a lot of hats...

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

WHERE (Len([cell]) < 10 OR Len([work]) > 10) AND SomeField Like "*" & "x"  & "*";

You were confusing the concatenation operator "&" with the relational operator "AND".  In your mind try to separate building the string from what the string should contain.  It will help you with syntax.
