Title: LIKE Performance Issue
Status: Closed Type: Performance
Severity: Important Priority: Immediate
Subsystem: LINQ Resolution: Unable_To_Reproduce

I ran into a performance issue with System.Data.SQLite when using a SQLiteParameter with a LIKE clause. Consider the following queries:

Query A: "SELECT * FROM SearchResults WHERE ContactName LIKE @ContactName"

Query B: "SELECT * FROM SearchResults WHERE ContactName LIKE 'test'"

Query A takes 100 times longer than Query B. The table has a COLLATE NOCASE index on ContactName with about 300,000 records. Query A takes about 500-700 ms while Query B takes 5 ms. I have been attempting to resolve the issue on my end (see but have been unsuccessful.

Could you provide the CREATE TABLE statement and some C# sample code that demonstrates the issue?
