Specific filter for the data in a field


In a field there are entries that have the symbol * entered for some reason. 
For example:

How can I filter and find all the data in that field that has "*" entered. I 
can't seem to find the filter for it.

Use this expression:
Like "*[*]*"

This means a wildcard followed by an asterisk followed by a wildcard.

I have a query built off of multiple Linked table that provides Staff information for my database. I am building a table that is basically a junction table, between this query and another table, Education/ Courses, to show what employee has taken what classes.

Applying data as a line over an area chart
Hi, I posted this question earlier on the miscellaneous forum but I struggled with the answer so I'm hoping I might have more luck if I explain more clearly. I have an area chart in excel with the x-axis being days and the y-axis being a percentage. (Each section of the chart is coloured) I need to work out a way of overlaying an additional line over the top of the existing data (using the same x&y axis') Unfortunately I can't just draw it on as I'll need the data for the line in cells referenced elsewhere. Is there a way I can set this up? There doesn't seem to b...

Using a filtered list as data range for a chart
Hello, I would like to chart a cumulative list of numbers I have in one column (B) on the Y axis and increment the X axis for each Y number i.e. X runs 1,2,3 etc. By cumulative, I mean the column B rows are derived from column A eg. B1=A1, B2=A1+A2, B3=A2+A3 etc. The problem I'm having is how to be able to filter the list of numbers in column B (eg. a subset of numbers or rows for month) for the Y axis and have the X axis run 1-31 to show a monthly chart. Ideally, I would like a drop down list to select the month and have the chart change after a new month is selected. Thanks in adv...
