I'm trying to do this query below using a the LIKE command but is not working for me which I assume if the word Smith shows up in the persons last name it will give me a result but it isn't. Also I'm using Dreamweaver for this, both queries work when I run from Navicat but the first does not in dreamweaver?

SELECT RecFirstName, RecLastName
FROM RecUsers
WHERE RecLastName LIKE '%Smith%'

Results = 0

But if I do this it works??
SELECT RecFirstName, RecLastName
FROM RecUsers
WHERE RecLastName LIKE 'Smith%'

Results 2 rows
Kim Smith
John Smith

Any ideas on why this isn't working?

Sounds like Dreamweaver is doing something to leading percentage signs -- I have no idea. Both queries work in SQL, so it's clearly a Dreamweaver issue.
Seriously... if people don't start reading this before posting, I'm going to consider not answering at all.

yeah, if I run the page I get results for both but when I'm testing from Dreamweaver it doesn't work. I'm posting on dreamweaver group now. Thanks
