    Wild Cards (2000)

    I have a field where I want to extract all data where the entry is F1* - where the * is not a wild card but an actual entry - I have other entries like F11* or F12* which I don't want - how do I pursuade Access that * in this case is a real character?
    Thanks

    Put square brackets [ ] around a wildcard character * or ? if you want to use it as a literal character:
    <code>
    Like "F1[*]"</code>
