MFSLIBRARY is a global variable.

Everything works except the LIKE selection.

If you do var_dump($sql); there you'd see what's broken.
Put quotes around "MFSLIBRARY"

I an trying to use a LIKE in my SQL to allow searching for the result.

From Run SQL Scripts this works exactly as expected

select * from mfsdta/mfsdebpf
where debcoy = 1 and debac like 'A%' and debact = 'A'
fetch first 10 rows only;

But from PHP running on the IBMi using the toolkitservice I have

$conn = getToolkitServiceForCurrentUser();
$sql = "select * from "
. " where DEBCOY = ? and DEBAC like ? and debact
? "
. " order by DEBAC "
. " fetch first 10 rows only";

$values = array();
$values[0] = $company;
$values[1] = $search . "%";
$values[2] = $status;
$stmt = prepareAndExecute($conn, $sql, $values);

The $values array have these values

Array ( [0] => 1 [1] => A% [2] => A )

No errors are received but no records either.

If I change the where to use and DEBAC >= ? then I get records returned
so it has to be the way I am formatting the variable with the % sign.

As a separate question I can't find any log file that may hold the
- any suggestions ????
