Getting query results in Workbench , Not in apex class/Script

Background : I need access account records in the apex class where name contains %

For example, the query should return below accounts

When i execute below query i am getting results in the workbench
select id,name from Account where Name LIKE '%\%%'

the same query If I execute in Anonymous window/apex execute getting no results

List<Account> accList = [select id,name from Account where Name LIKE '%\%%'];
system.debug('accList :::'+accList.size());

If we observe below image, it is appending extra / in the query and giving wrong results. 

Can you please help me how to resolve this?

Hi Ashok,

Greetings to you!

Below is the sample code which I have tested in my org and it is working fine. Kindly modify the code as per your requirement.
String searchString = '%\\%%';
List<Account> accList = [select id,name from Account where Name LIKE : searchString];
System.debug('accList -> ' + accList);

I hope it helps you.

Kindly let me know if it helps you and close your query by marking it as solved so that it can help others in the future. It will help to keep this community clean.

Thanks and Regards,
