MS Access Query using a Like statement.

MS Access query issue. I have a form that requires someone to enter an IP address in a field to do a lookup. So I need the query to use that form field. In the table that contains the IP addresses, some of the IP address are preceded by other characters, some do not. I need for the criteria in the query to use something along the lines of, Like "*[forms]![Lookup]![IP]*", but that doesn't work. Is there a way to get the results I'm looking for? I need were the IP address is any part of the field.

"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.

Your query should look like
like "*" & Forms!Lookup!ip & "*"

Open in new window

Note how that expression concatenates to give you the desired expression.
