I am trying to run an SQL command ... I have it working as:

sSql = "SELECT * FROM tClaim WHERE ClaimNo = " & """" & sLab & """"

but I need to do a wild card search and trim the variable..... so I tried this:

sSql = "SELECT * FROM tClaim WHERE ClaimNo Like "" * "" & Trim(sLab) & "" * """

This just ends up freezing up MS Access.

What is wrong with my SQL statement looking for a wild card?

Thank you.
