I'm using a  cnn = New ADODB.Connection, to get some data from SQL SERVER 2008R2
When I run my simple select statment below, I'm getting thousands of records back. (in the sample attached, I should have received back the first  3 records back only).
if I run the same script inside SQL, I get the proper results. (one record per Tracking).

Any help is appreciated.

    Dim cnt As Integer
    Dim i As Integer
 For i = 2 To Range("A2").End(xlDown).Row + 1
 cnt = cnt + 1
' Start
cnn.Open "Provider=SQLOLEDB.1;User ID= xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

sql = "Select OrderNo, " & _
"NoteNumber from FinalizedOrderNotes " & _
"where NoteText Like ('%" & sh.Cells(i, 1) & "%') "

    rs.Open sql, cnn, adOpenDynamic, adLockOptimistic
    sh.Cells(i, 2).CopyFromRecordset rs
     Next i

Thank you,
