Join Adam Wilbert for an in-depth discussion in this video Specifying criteria with wildcards, part of Access 2016 Essential Training.
- Adding wildcard characters to your query criteria…is a perfect way for those times…when you want to filter your data,…based off of a common pattern,…rather than an exact text match.…Let's go ahead and create a new query by going to…the create tab and then choosing the query designer.…I'm going to build a query based off of our guests table.…So, I'll double click it here in the show table window,…and then we'll go ahead and close the show table window.…From the guests table, we're going…to pull out a couple of fields.…I'm going to double click first name,…double click last name, and we'll go ahead…and scroll down here, and we'll double click on phone,…and then we'll go ahead and scroll back up,…and double click on country here.…
So, we've already seen that we can do…an exact text search by coming down here…to the criteria row, for instance,…I'm in a criteria row below last name,…and I can just type in Miller, for instance,…if I wanted to find all of our guests…with the last name of Miller.…If I run this query, by coming up here…
