there is table called "Customer" fiels called "CName"
now CName is Full name
Asmat Ullah
Asmat Ullah Khan
Asmat Khan

now when i load the code which is

Private Sub CmdCSearch_Click()
    If TxtCSearch.Text = "" Then
        Dim info As String
        If Option1.Value = True Then
            info = "Customer ID"
            info = "Customer Name"
        End If
        MsgBox "First Enter " & info & "."
        Dim rsCSearch As ADODB.Recordset
        Set rsCSearch = New ADODB.Recordset
        'rsCSearch.Open "Customer", gobjConn, adOpenDynamic, adLockPessimistic
        If Option1.Value = True Then
            rsCSearch.Filter = "ID='" & TxtCSearch.Text & "'"
            'rsCSearch.Filter = "CName='" & Trim(TxtCSearch.Text) & "%'"
            'SQL = "Select * FROM Customer WHERE CName like '" & Trim(TxtCSearch.Text) & "%'"
            rsCSearch.Open "SELECT * FROM Customer WHERE CName LIKE " & "'" & TxtCSearch.Text & "'", gobjConn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic
        End If
        Do Until rsCSearch.EOF = True
            Dim CustomerListObj As ListItem
            Set CustomerListObj = ListView2.ListItems.add(, , rsCSearch!ID)
            CustomerListObj.SubItems(1) = rsCSearch!CName
    End If
End Sub

my DB connection is connected when my main page loads
and DB info is in modules
gobjConn is the connection name

now when i enter asmat in TxtCSearch (it is the textbox) i only get two results Asmat and asmat

i want to search like if i put "a" in textbox i should get all starting starting with "a"
if i put "as" then all result starting with "as" and if i put "asmat"
then i should get all asmat, asmat ullah, asmat ullah khan, asmat khan, and asmat
but i only get
asmat, Asmat 2 results

rsCSearch.Filter = "CName='" & Trim(TxtCSearch.Text) & "%'" 
'no result is shown
rsCSearch.Filter = "CName='" & Trim(TxtCSearch.Text) & "'"
only asmat, Asmat are shown
rsCSearch.Open "SELECT * FROM Customer WHERE CName LIKE " & "'" & TxtCSearch.Text & "%'", gobjConn, adOpenStatic, adLockOptimistic
