    SQL isn't like English... it doesn't understand what you mean by "where Name and Code Like...." so you have to be specific ....
    "where Name like 'something%' and Code like 'Something%' "

    Yes... that means if you want to more than two fields, you have to do that for each and every field...

    well, unfortunately my crystal ball is in the shop being fixed, and I'm not sitting in your lap, so I don't see what you're seeing, so I have no idea what error you're getting.

    He already showed you what you needed to do, but you still have not shown the code you supposedly modified using his recommendation. I am surprised the code you showed at the top of the first post worked in Access. Correct SQL syntax would be like TG said
    Code:
    SELECT * FROM Table1 WHERE Name LIKE 'somepartialstring%' AND Code LIKE 'anotherpartialstring%';
    This works perfectly fine in MySQL 5.6.35.

    yes,it works in MSaccess, provided you tell MSaccess to use SQL-92
    (SQL-92 is an option since MSaccess 2003, if i remember correctly)
    but i am almost 100% sure it will not return what vbgedo thinks it will return
    vbgedo, try leaving the Name field blank in a few records
    do not put off till tomorrow what you can put off forever
