Hi:

Below is my code.  I know that my view "WIPTEST" has data that should be returned though the WHERE clause's use of LIKE.  But, no data is being returned.

What would make SQL not return results, in such a case?  Do I need to use "trimming" or something along those lines?

 (SELECT DISTINCT [LOT]
     FROM WIPTEST
     WHERE 
	   [LOT] LIKE [Component]+'%')
