Problem with "==" Match entire field
I'm new the forum so I would deeply appreciate any help with my problem! I've recently started to notice that when I add "==" to a search query File Maker Pro 11v3 quickly informs me that there is no match. However, that is impossible as the field automatically fills itself in as I type and once it comes up with the correct information, I stop typing.
For example, since I am working with a photographer collector, I start typing in "Nick Nixon" and once I get to Nick, File Make Pro fills in the rest for me. However, when I enter in a search query for "Nick Nixon==" it tells me that I there was nothing matching my query, even though in the database there are at least 20 photographs appropriately labeled with "Nick Nixon" as the photographer.
This is important because I have some fields with "(Nick Nixon)" and some fields without the parentheses these mean two different things. So, when I search for "Nick Nixon==" it means that I do not want "(Nick Nixon)" included.
I'm so sorry for the long post, but I'm curious if anyone else has dealt with a similar problem? I tried checking for updates, but apparently I'm all up to date, is there something else that I'm doing wrong?
Thanks in advance for any help you can give,
