Hello Sadegh. I think you are inverting the order on the like operator.

Usually you write something like: Table.Name Like "%" + LocalVar + "%"

Note a few key differences. The local variable (which is the search term) is on the right-hand side of the Like operator. You had the variable on the left-hand side. On the left-hand side, you have a text field from the database. You were using the Id which is usually an integer, so that probably needs to be changed.
