Bizarre FIND behavior please help


     Here's an example of the problem:

     I have multiple records with a text field that contains the text "1/23".

     If I enter find mode and type "1/23" into the field, no matches are found

     If I copy the "1/23" that's already in the field and enter find mode and paste it in, the records are found

     It seems to only occur with numbers. I've been using FileMaker for years and I've never seen this. I converted from 8.5 to 12 recently and the database crashed recently, I don't know if that has anything to do with it. I rebuilt the field index but that didn't do anything.
