Some possibilities (as long as the .net provider is handling the input

1. The column KUNDE is not in the default character set of the database.
2. The column KUNDE is in the default character set but the existing items
found by the search were entered in character set NONE (or some other
character set).
3. The column or domain uses a COLLATE attribute that excludes that character.
