Query like condition

I have this part of code which could not work it gave message record not found, even value exist.
I am not sure what is wrong with like condition?
Is the problem Left outer join? I tried with Inner Join it is the same.

  Dim rst As DAO.Recordset
    Dim strBusName As String

    Set db = CurrentDb
    Dim strSQL As String

    If (Not IsNull(Me.txtBusinessName)) And Me.txtBusinessName.Value <> "" Then
        strBusName = Nz(Me.txtBusinessName, "")
        'strSQL = "Select * from tblContact WHERE LastName Like '" & strL_Name & "*'"

        strSQL = "Select * From tblContact Left Outer JOIN tblBusiness ON tblContact.ContactID = tblBusiness.ContactID WHERE tblBusiness.BusinessName Like '" & strBusName & " *'"
        Set rst = db.OpenRecordset(strSQL, dbOpenDynaset)
        If rst.BOF = True And rst.EOF = True Then  ' no record found
            MsgBox "No record found"
            Set rst = Nothing
Do something.
        End If

Can you put this in a query, open it in the datasheet view and check if you really have the BusinessName you are looking for
Select tblBusiness.BusinessName From tblContact Left Outer JOIN tblBusiness ON tblContact.ContactID = tblBusiness.ContactID

Looks like you have an extra space in your Like statement:
Like '" & strBusName & " *'"

Open in new window

should be
Like '" & strBusName & "*'"
