Swati - It would be easier to review if you could post the actual FOCUS code and the SQL being generated. Can you please?

Unfortunately, the SQL translator does not like LIKE.

In a case like this I would use SQL passthru and code my own SQL.

Because the mask is at the beginning of the string and not at the end.

I think that this would have been highlighted in the SQL trace with a (FOC2598) FOCUS IF/WHERE TEST CANNOT BE PASSED TO SQL

Definitely Waz, except that the "why" is not documented anywhere:

Well a case needs to be put in with IBI to make sure the documentation is updated.
