You could specify an escape character for the wildcard characters like this:
WHERE C1 LIKE ’AAAA+%BBB%’ ESCAPE ’+’

Subject: LIKE quandary
I have a JOIN on two tables, and I have no control over the data. I've now
ran into a situation where one of the tables contains wildcard characters
that are fouling up the JOIN.
0110 EXFN 01 ABCD
0110 EXFN 01
____ EXFN 01
The JOIN clause:
T2.column concat '%' LIKE T1.column
This has always worked fine, but in this case it's matching both rows in
Any suggestions on this?
