Like criteria changing to ALike

    When creating a new query and using the like criteria it is automatically
    changing to ALike. I have even tried changing the SQL to Like and in design
    view it is changing automatically to ALike. Does anyone know what is
    happening? Could an Access required file has been deleted? I have a
    database file I can forward if helpful.

    Thanks

    Sharon:

    Very strange! The only thing which springs to mind is that at Office level
    'Like' is set to autocorrect to 'alike'. Autocorrection is applied in form
    controls in Access by default unless a control's AllowAutoCorrect property is
    set to False, but I've never heard of it happening in a query. Also it seems
    unlikely that anyone would have set Office up to change 'like' to 'alike'.

    Still, its probably worth checking the autocorrect settings.

    One suspicion - in Tools | Options - Tables/Queries tab - is the "SQL
    Server Compatible Syntax (ANSI 92)" selected? If so, and it isn't vital
    for the db to use more ANSI 92 compatible syntax, unselect.

    That seems to work. I checked an older Access file and those options were
    not checked. Thank you so much for your help.
