BuildQuery( columns, criteria, separator )
columns Columns to be included in the query.
Special character sequences can be included in '{}' brackets. This allows the developer to specify a prefix and suffix for the column value.
(ie. {'%}col1{%'}  ==>   '%data%')
criteria Supplied criteria (ie. the words and boolean operators).
separator A separator used between criteria sub-expressions. (default is '=', another choice may be 'LIKE')
