WHERE clause and wildcards - Microsoft SQL / MS SQL Server

I've got 2 variables and I'm trying to use them with wildcards. I can't seem to get the syntax correct. It worked when I used a similar statement using ASP and dynamic SQL. Somehow, I'm not getting it converted into a stored procedure correctly. Title varchar(70), Artist varchar(70), WHERE (ItemTitles.Title LIKE '%' & Title & '%') AND (ItemTitles.Artist LIKE '%' & Artist & '%') How can I implement the variable with wildcards? thanks!...

    Default WHERE clause and wildcards

    I've got 2 variables and I'm trying to use them with wildcards. I can't seem
    to get the syntax correct. It worked when I used a similar statement using
    ASP and dynamic SQL. Somehow, I'm not getting it converted into a stored
    procedure correctly.

    Title varchar(70),
    Artist varchar(70),

    WHERE (ItemTitles.Title LIKE '%' & Title & '%') AND (ItemTitles.Artist
    LIKE '%' & Artist & '%')

    How can I implement the variable with wildcards?
    thanks!

    Transact-SQL uses the plus (+) for string concatenation and the ampersand
    (&) for Bitwise AND.

    Change your code to:
    WHERE (ItemTitles.Title LIKE '%' + Title + '%') AND (ItemTitles.Artist
    LIKE '%' + Artist + '%')

    You can do:

    WHERE param LIKE '%' + col + '%'
