I am having a problem with Access and seem to be able to make no progress. Maybe someone can help.
When I execute the following sql query in Access, it returns (in my DB) 3 rows:
Select Project.* from Customer INNER JOIN Project ON Customer.ID = Project.Cust_ID WHERE ((Cust.Name) Like "*Abc*");
When I try the same query with Java, I get an SQLException. I don't know what it would say in English, but something about 1 parameter expected but too few are given.
When I change the " to ', it executes without an exception, but returns 0 rows.
When I change Like to =, it works fine.
Does anyone have any idea what the problem could be?
