SQLite LIKE Clause (Operator)

The SQLite LIKE operator is used to match text values against a pattern using wildcards. In the case search expression is matched to the pattern expression, the LIKE operator will return true, which is 1.

There are two wildcards used in conjunction with the LIKE operator:

  • The percent sign (%)
  • The underscore (_)

The percent sign represents zero, one, or multiple numbers or characters. The underscore represents a single number or character.

Where FEES like '_00%' It will find any values that have 00 in the second and third positions.
Where FEES like '2_%_%' It will find any values that start with 2 and are at least 3 characters in length.
