    QuickFind Exact Match

    jameshea

      I'm trying to create a programmatic way of restricting QuickFinds to find quoted text. For instance 'credit memo' (small quotes to indicate the search criteria) is different from "credit memo" in the QuickFind. As you would expect, with the double quotes, FileMaker is searching for the phrase "credit memo" within the search results. If you do this manually, it works like a charm and I get different results.

       

      However, I want to do this programmatically. Every time I try to add double quotes to the field or the variable, I end up getting a literal string of the name of the field or variable, not the contents. Any idea on how to resolve this?
