How can I write a SQOL query by using the wildcard start with the “electronics”?

46    Asked by aminat_1883 in Salesforce , Asked on Jun 20, 2024

I am currently working as a Salesforce developer for a retailer company. The company has a custom object called “Product_ _c” which can store information about the various products. Each product has a field called “Product _Name_ _C” which can hold the name of the product. My task is to write an SQOL query by using the wildcard starting with “Electronics”. How can I construct this particular query? 

In the context of Salesforce, here is the example given below by using the Java programming language:-

Import com.sforce.soap.enterprise.Connector;
Import com.sforce.soap.enterprise.EnterpriseConnection;
Import com.sforce.soap.enterprise.QueryResult;
Import com.sforce.soap.enterprise.sobject.Product__c;
Public class SalesforceQueryExample {
    Public static void main(String[] args) {
        // Salesforce credentials
        String username = “your_username”;
        String password = “your_password”;
        String securityToken = “your_security_token”;
        String authEndpoint =; // Adjust API version as needed
        Try {
            // Set up the connection configuration
            ConnectorConfig config = new ConnectorConfig();
            Config.setPassword(password + securityToken);
            // Create the connection
            EnterpriseConnection connection = Connector.newConnection(config);
            // Construct the SOQL query with wildcard
            String soqlQuery = “SELECT Id, Product_Name__c FROM Product__c WHERE Product_Name__c LIKE ‘Electronics%’”;
            // Execute the query
            QueryResult queryResult = connection.query(soqlQuery);
            If (queryResult.getSize() > 0) {
                System.out.println(“Products whose names start with ‘Electronics’:”);
                For (Product__c product : queryResult.getRecords()) {
                    System.out.println(“Product ID: “ + product.getId() + “, Name: “ + product.getProduct_Name__c());
            } else {
                System.out.println(“No products found.”);
            // Close the connection
        } catch (Exception e) {

Here is the example given in python programming language:-

From simple_salesforce import Salesforce
# Salesforce credentials
Username = ‘your_username’
Password = ‘your_password’
Security_token = ‘your_security_token’
Domain = ‘login’ # for production use ‘login’, for sandbox use ‘test’
# Initialize Salesforce connection
Sf = Salesforce(username=username, password=password, security_token=security_token, domain=domain)
# Define the SOQL query with a wildcard
Soql_query = “SELECT Id, Name, Product_Name__c FROM Product__c WHERE Product_Name__c LIKE ‘Electronics%’”
    # Execute the SOQL query
    Query_result = sf.query_all(query=soql_query)
    # Process the query result
    If query_result[‘totalSize’] > 0:
        Print(“Products whose names start with ‘Electronics’:”)
        For record in query_result[‘records’]:
            Product_id = record[‘Id’]
            Product_name = record[‘Product_Name__c’]
            Print(f”Product ID: {product_id}, Name: {product_name}”)
        Print(“No products found.”)
Except Exception as e:
    Print(f”An error occurred: {e}”)
# Logout from Salesforce (optional)
# sf.logout()

Here is the html based example given below:-

        Document.getElementById(‘soqlForm’).addEventListener(‘submit’, function(event) {
            Event.preventDefault(); // Prevent the default form submission
            Const query = document.getElementById(‘query’).value;
            // Make AJAX request to execute the SOQL query
            Const xhr = new XMLHttpRequest();
  ‘POST’, ‘’, true); // Replace with your Salesforce endpoint URL
            Xhr.setRequestHeader(‘Content-Type’, ‘application/json’);
            Xhr.onload = function() {
                If (xhr.status >= 200 && xhr.status < 300 xss=removed xss=removed xss=removed xss=removed> 0) {
                const records = result.records;
                const resultList = document.createElement(‘ul’);
                records.forEach(record => {
                    const listItem = document.createElement(‘li’);
                    listItem.textContent = `Product ID: ${record.Id}, Name: ${record.Product_Name__c}`;
            } else {
                queryResultDiv.textContent = ‘No products found.’;
