Is it not working at all, or is it just incredibly slow to populate over the WAN connection? Have you tried typing in just one letter and waiting a really long time (whatever that may be) for your WAN connection to cache the entire record list and then filter it? I would expect it to work, but also to be painfully slow on GO with thousands of record values to cache.
Will test that, but my initial reaction is that it just isn't working. Not sure if this is feature of Go. Not mentioned in literature, guides, etc.

This functionality is not yet support within FileMaker Go as we leverage the text engine build into iOS for FM Go vs. the FileMaker Pro text engine, which does support this functionality. This is on our list to address in the furture, in the meantime the functionality you are looking for does not exist within FileMaker Go.

Rick, is it possible to create this functionality via scripts and script triggers. I have seen examples of this functions in filemaker (not GO) using script triggers and having filemaker perform finds as the person types. Please bare in mind that I'm not too familar with all the limitations of GO as I have just starting creating GO customizations to my current FMP solutions.
Thanks Rick. IF there is a work around or something that might work in a similar manner (keeping ion mind remote slowdown), would sure appreciate it. Like others, am getting my feet wet.
