I'm getting following error
Private Sub Command5_Click()
Dim strsearch As String
Dim Task As String
'Check if a keyword entered or not
If IsNull(Me.txtSearch) Or Me.txtSearch = "" Then
   MsgBox "Please type in your search keyword.", vbOKOnly, "Keyword Needed"
   Me.txtSearch.BackColor = vbYellow
   Me.txtSearch.SetFocus
Else
    strsearch = Me.txtSearch.Value
    Task = "SELECT * FROM Copy and Paste WHERE ((Comment Like ""*" & strsearch & "*""))"
   Me.Comment = Task
   Me.txtSearch.BackColor = vbWhite
End If
End Sub

Open in new window

I think your SQL is not correct ... The Select statement you look like this:

Task = "SELECT * FROM YourTableNameHere WHERE ((YourFieldNameHere Like ""*" & strsearch & "*""))"
Me.RecordSource = Task

Post the contents of your string variable Task after it has been populated.

Try this for your SELECT statement ...

Task = "SELECT * FROM TableName WHERE FieldName LIKE '*" & strSearch & "*';"
