I know this is a dtupid question, but...<BR><BR>I have the follwing SQL statement:<BR>sqlstmt = "select topic_comment from comments where survey_id = " & survey_id & " and topic_id = 'general_comment_*'"<BR><BR>At the end you will notice the text string general_comment_*. The asterisk at the end is supposed to be a wild card. In reality a number is at the end where the asterisk is. If I put a number at the end (general_comment_2), it will pull the record, but I have mulitple records to pull with different endings. The database I am using is Access.
