Maybe just a corrupted index.
Or maybe you are copying text from a number field. A number field won't have the needed index to find a record with the text "apple" in it, for example, but you'd still be able to see the text and copy/paste it.
I'm copying an email address, entering Find, pasting into the same field and getting the message, "No Records Match That Criteria.
I'll try my backup. If that doesn't work, I'll create a clone and import each table into the clone.
Any other suggestions?
Yes put the pasted text between quotes and it should work.
An email address includes the @ symbol. This is a search operator so you need to enclose your email address in quotes to get FileMaker to treat the @ symbol as just a character.
Thank you. That worked.
Never knew the @ symbol had that effect.
