In SQL it is common to use like when querying data. For example, the following SQL statement queries the CustTable table for all customers that begin with ’12’
select * from CustTable where AccountNum like '12%'
It is also possible to use like in X++ syntax. The following X++ statement queries the CustTable table for the same data:
CustTable custTable; AccountNum accountNumFilter; accountNumFilter = '12*'; select custTable where custTable.AccountNum like accountNumFilter;
