How to search text with dots inside

Hi,

 

I have some costumers that have names like "A.S.A.P." and, when I am searching for them, it is much easier to search for "ASAP" instead of typing letters and dots.

Unfortunally filemaker cannot find records if I did not place the dots between letters.

 

Is there any way to change this behaviour?

 

 

The only solution I can think is to create a new calculation field and use some functions to remove dots from words so that I can do a "quick search" that will look in such new field, where words are withoud dots.

 

Thanks
