Hi EE

I am having problems with a like search using chr(34)
Here is my code
Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] = " & Chr(34) & Me!txtSurname & Chr(34)
I want to change to a like search. I have tried
Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] Like " * [" & Chr(34) & "] * " &  Me!txtSurname & Chr(34)"

Any help appreciated

I need to use chr(34) because we have a lot of O'Brians etc

Perhaps this:
Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] Like " & Chr(34) & Me!txtSurname & Chr(39) & "*" & Chr(34)

Both of the following work.  For the latter I just used double quotation marks instead Chr(34).  Take your pick:
Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] LIKE " & Chr(34) & Me!txtSurname & Chr(34)
Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] LIKE """  & Me!txtSurname & """"

Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] Like " & Chr(34) & Me!txtSurname & Chr(39) & "*" & Chr(34)

The above wont find any surname. I have for example I entered Jones which is a current surbname it didn't find it.

Enter both
Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] LIKE " & Chr(34) & Me!txtSurname & Chr(34)
Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] LIKE """  & Me!txtSurname & """"

for example I searched for Jones and it finds all jones but if I enter Jon no luck

Your help is appreciated

Search = "SELECT * FROM tblCustomer WHERE [SurName] Like  " & Chr(39) & "*" & Me!txtSurname & "*" & chr(39)

It will find full name but not a partial name
