Hi,<BR>I try to search for a string of chinese words from a column of string field using something like "select ADDRESS from table1 where ADDRESS like &#039;ROAD&#039; ". It works for english words and chinese words. But when somethings I put a letter (e.g. &#039;e&#039;) in the like clause, the result set gives some chinese wordings, which I don&#039;t want to show. How can I avoid it?
