I have a database with a postcode field containing upto 8 characters. I want to search the field and pull out only the records corresponding to the fist 3/4 characters of the field. I have fields such as W14 0DY, SW14 8FS. I am using the following line:<BR>"SELECT * FROM data WHERE AD6 LIKE '%" & Request("AD6") & "%'"<BR>If I search for W14 it returns all the records with W14 in the field. What is the command to enable me narrow this to the search criteria? Thanks in advance for your help.
