Escaping LIKE wild-cards with MS-Jet (Access)

P: n/a

I need to search for database text with underlines in it. However,
underlines are interpreted as wild-cards in LIKE clause text . I need
to know how to escape the underlines so as to be able to search them.
Some DB's use an "Escape" keyword and others use a back-slash to escape
wild-cards. However, Jet does not seem to support either of these.

Note that I am accessing Access files via ODBC and ADO (or is it DAO?)
and not through Access directly.

Thanks in advance, -T-

Thanks! Did the trick! You get an "Avoid Offshoring For Free" card.
