Mail Merge wildcards

I have set up mailing labels through mail merge using MySql database by way of an ODBC connection.
I can use the “standard filter” to print only the people I want, and even use the wildcard feature in all the text fields
as in ‘dun*’
which will return all names beginning with “dun”

My problem is I want to find all people who have a birthday in a specific month.
I cannot figure out how to do a partial filter for just the month.
I have tried #04*# for the first 2 digits of the date field, but that returns an error.

I know this is possible, but I can’t seem to find the solution.

Please Help !!


I personally would go to simpler by adding the MONTH field to a query in the MySQL database.
