Using Wildcard Characters in LIKE Operations in SQL Server


How To Use Wildcard Characters in LIKE Operations in SQL Server Transact-SQL?



Wildcard character '%' can be used in the pattern string for the LIKE operator to match any string of zero or more characters. The following example uses '%Sport% Store' to search all company names that has a partial word 'Sport' and ended with the word 'Store'. The sample database AdventureWorksLT provided by Microsoft is used.

USE adventureWorksLT

SELECT c.CompanyName FROM SalesLT.Customer c
WHERE c.CompanyName LIKE '%Sport% Store'
Specialty Sports Store
Camping and Sports Store
Vigorous Sports Store
Our Sporting Goods Store
