portal search from a global field, all in a popover

Search Comments::cAllOldComments = Globals::GFCommentsSearch

The above is the filter that doesn't filter. It produces no lines of data in the portal.

If I set the filter to IsEmpty (Globals::GFCommentsSearch) and leave the Globals::GFCommentsSearch field empty, each record shows up in a  portal row as it should. That leads me to think there is something I don't know about filtering.

Is it just like a find? Or does the match have to be all and exact? And is "Search Comments::cAllOldComments = Globals::GFCommentsSearch" a valid way to filter/select records that have content in the Search Comments::cAllOldComments field that match the contents of Globals::GFCommentsSearch ?
