Cannot perform finds on full e-mail address


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Snow Leopard

Description of the issue

When trying to perform a find for an e-mail address, it returns a "no records found" for addresses that exist. Since I have auto-complete on, it even displays the address I'm looking for, I select it, and it still gives that error.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Perform Find, enter the e-mail address I'm searching for, and it shows the address via auto-complete, and when I select the one I'm looking for from the list, it says "no records found." However, if I put == then the e-mail address, it finds it. If I put = and the address, then "no records found". If I enter in any part of the address before the "@" then it finds it as well.

Expected result

Finding existing e-mail address

Actual result

Does not find it


Search with == before the search string, or entering any portion of the text before the "@" sign.
