Search for records by entering multiple values in search field

Post

I'm using Filemaker 10 Adv and am new to Filemaker.

 

The DB I am moving from allows a search by entering multiple values in a field separated by commas such as 123, 456, 789 returning exact matching records containing this data.

 

Is there a similar method to accomplish this type of search in filemaker?

 

We often must search the database for 30 or so serialized container records that must undergo a process each day. If the user can enter every serial number in a search field that returns those records the process is more efficient to change the data for all records and print inspection reports of the found group.
