    Unanswered: search for "*" character

    I want to search a field which might contain "*" character by using a query. I understand that "*" is using as wildcard and therefore I cannot input "*" directly in the criteria in a query. How can I input "*" as a search criteria in a query? I am using Access 2003. Please advise. Thanks.
