      Description of the issue

      Hi,

      Somebody probably already posted about this since it's a really annoying issue. I couldn't find anything related to it in the forums though.

      The problem is that field validation is enabled in find mode. That's completely absurd! If I want to search with a wildcard (e.g. "*") on a numeric only field (validated), FM will tell me that I must enter a number! Seriously?

      I could easily work around this issue with a calculation, but the simple (and good) solution would be that FM doesn't use field validation in find mode.

      Thanks,

      Antony
