Title

creating a search field that searches all fields

Post

     hello, i am using FMP 12A and utilizing it for a PO database.  I used to use repeating fields and searching was pretty easy that way but exporting sucked.

     I updated it now to have 20 individual fields that dont repeat.  i would like to create a search field that searches the entire page (or a select number of fields) for certain key words.

     ex: i have 100 POs that have 10-20 items ordered on each.  I would like to see whom ordered the "Bailey" without having to hit find and put "bailey" into each of the 20 fields.  I hope this makes sense and it is prob an easy fix but i cant figure it out

     any help would be greatly appreciated.

     thanks.
