Ex-Staff is indicized by FileMaker as two words, so searching for Staff will find also Ex-Staff.
1) Change the separator from "-" to ".", so to have Ex.Staff
2) Place the same field, but formatted as an Edit Box and enterable ONLY in Find Mode,then search inside it with "==Staff"
Edit: there was only a sinle "="
=Staff will also find "Ex-Staff".
Thank you, comment.
Thanks all for input - works a treat - I did get to the point of trying an underscore in the value list entries, but didn't think of a dot.
