When you do a find, the most common thing is to look for one thing in one field.
But during the find you can add a New Request, put 2009 into year2.
Once you have created all your find requess, perform the find.
grant_no, owner_name, amount_approved, date_start, date_end,
amount1, amount2, amount3, year1, year2, year3
That's not a good arrangement to have. You should split this data into two tables:
related by GrantID. Then you can simply search the Periods table for the relevant year.
