      Is a global search/find field possible....

      Post

      Hello,

       

      I recently switched from Bento to FMP. A nice feature that Bento offered was a Search/Find field which was basically a field where I can enter in any string of text and/or numbers and Bento would automatically perform a search of all records containing any part of that info.

       

      For example, if I typed in "rob", the program would search ALL record fields and return all records that contained any form of "rob" such as "rob", "robert" robertson", etc. Again, I had this search field inserted in my layout so all I had to do to perform a search is just begin typing into it. No buttons to push, either before or after entering the search criteria info.

       

      Is there any way to set this up in FMP?

       

      Thanks again for all the help.
