Speeding user search of portal data


Is there a way to make searching a portal easier? Specifically, is there a way for the user not to have to type out portal options that need to favor the development rather than the end user?

I have a plain vanilla join-centric db:

Record <---> JOIN_rec_char <---> Characteristics

The Characteristics table is a flat-file listing. The user is currently forced to manually enter obtuse and challenging text to do booleans with the setup. I was looking for a way to simplify this in the Find-mode, but I haven’t been successful with pop-ups (yet).

Seeking advice on a Filemaker 8.5 rig.
