The following example uses the  operator to find the IDs and names of all Adventure Works employees who have addresses with a four-digit postal code.
USE AdventureWorks; GO SELECT e.EmployeeID, c.FirstName, c.LastName, a.PostalCode FROM HumanResources.Employee AS e INNER JOIN Person.Contact AS c ON e.ContactID = c.ContactID INNER JOIN HumanResources.EmployeeAddress AS ea ON e.EmployeeID = ea.EmployeeID INNER JOIN Person.Address AS a ON a.AddressID = ea.AddressID WHERE a.PostalCode LIKE '[0-9][0-9][0-9][0-9]'; GO
Here is the result set:
EmployeeID FirstName LastName PostalCode ---------- --------- --------- ---------- 290 Lynn Tsoflias 3000
