Wildcard search characters in SQL

underscore is a wildcard for single charachter

select * from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES where TABLE_NAME like '_a_a%' order by TABLE_NAME
ces_barclaysplc dbo data_type BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo data_type_group BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo data_type_group_operator BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo datafeed_questionbank BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo datafeed_questionbank_BAKUP BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo datafeed_testanswer BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo datafeed_testbank BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo datafeed_testquestion BASE TABLE


to search for underscore use [_]

select * from INFORMATION_SCHEMA.TABLES where TABLE_NAME like '[___]%' order by TABLE_NAME
ces_barclaysplc dbo ___analytics_report_schedule_08_26_2009 BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo ___datafeed_talent_20100210 BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo ___datafeed_users_20100210 BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo ___dataseg_ucf BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo ___lo_options BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo ___loadrl BASE TABLE
ces_barclaysplc dbo ___pdOnline_20100210 BASE TABLE
