It's a wildcard

Example:  I'm looking for the value "A1" in a column that has values
A1-1, A1-2, A1-3

select count(*) from table where column like '%A1%'
will give me a count of three

Hello list,

I am trying to decipher some code written by someone else. In it there
is a query:

$query = "select description from $prodtable where description like '%'
or type like '%' group by description";

I've seen it used as mathematical modulos, but not sure how it's used
