    Question about the find for text field in FileMaker?

    liyangao

      I have a simple but confusing question.

       

      For gender, I have the value list of "Male" and "Female" and showed the field as a radio button. If I search on "Male" or "Female", it will return the right answer even though the word "male" is embedded in "female".

       

      I have another field names "status", which has the value list of "Yes", "No", "Not found" and was set to be a radio button too. How come when I search for "No", all the "Not found" will show up too?

       

      Would you please help me to explain the difference in the two cases? Does it matter whether the embedded part is located in the front, middle or end?

       

      Thanks for your help,

      Liyan
