Finding a # sign in a recordset



I have a table tbl_Credit_Application_Input that uses text values for
Corporate Name and a DBA/Trade Name columns. Users have a tendency to
input a name like Subway #34545 in one of the columns. When I use my
search query to try to pull the row that includes the Subway #34545 as
part of the criteria, the search comes up blank because of the #
sign. I am looking for a way to identify any record that has the #
sign in it and clean out the # sign so the record can be pulled by the
query. I pull the initial data from tbl_Credit_Application_Input
using an append query into tbl_Info, then use tbl_Info as a temp table
to pull the data into tbl_ID for the final edit screen to view. The
tbl_Credit_Application_Input to tbl_Info query works fine, but getting
the data from tbl_Info to tbl_ID is an issue when the # sign is
involved. The code for the tbl_Info to tbl_ID append query is below:

INSERT INTO tbl_ID ( [Date Rcvd], [Date Completed], Status, Outlet,
[Existing Outlet], [Type of Request], [Corporate Name], [DBA/Trade
Name], [A/P Contact Name], [A/P Phone], [A/P Fax], [Billing Address],

WHERE (((tbl_Info.[Date Rcvd]) Like [Forms]![frm_Edit_Existing_App]!
[subfrm_Choose_App].[Form]![txt_Date_Rcvd]) AND ((tbl_Info.Status)
Like [Forms]![frm_Edit_Existing_App]![subfrm_Choose_App].[Form]!

[frm_Edit_Existing_App]![subfrm_Choose_App].[Form]![txt_BU]) AND
((tbl_Info.Identifier) Like [Forms]![frm_Edit_Existing_App]!

The table is larger than I would have liked, but I was tasked with
amending another persons table creation rather than creating a new
database from scratch. I thought of using a recordset search but I
don't know if I can specify a particular item in a string doing things
that way. Any help will be greatly appreciated.
