Wildcard is special character is represent to another character.

Like as run* -->then result get out run, runing, runs.

A wildcard character can be used to substitute for any other character(s) in a string. SQL wildcards are used to search for data within a table.

For Example1:
SELECT * FROM Customers
WHERE City LIKE 'ber%';
//Displays table containing city starting with Ber...//

For Example2:
SELECT * FROM Customers
WHERE City LIKE '%es%';
//Displays table containing city ending with es...//

If you want to select persons name from persons table ending with d and starting with m,
Then use the syntax like this,

select * from PERSONS where personname like 'm%d';

Ex: mad, mohammad, married, mustard, etc.,

And to retrieve persons name where 5th letter is d and 7th letter is s and after s you can have any characters, then use,

select * from PERSONS where personname like '_ _ _ _ d_s%'

Ex: kalidas.

Using the _ Wildcard.

Now we want to select the persons with a first name that starts with any character, followed by "la" from the "Persons" table. We use the following SELECT statement:

SELECT * FROM Persons WHERE FirstName LIKE '_la'
