      doing a search

      Post

      I wonder if someone could help. We use Filemaker pro 8 here and I am newbie to it. Never used it before. We run a large databse. I will be responsible for maintaining it and I was asked a question to find an email address which need to be deleted from the database as the user doesn't want to receive our email. However, I can't find the user neither by name nor by email address. I tried exporting to Excel and then doing a find and no luck. My guess was that the user had registered with as with different email address and then maybe is forwarding all email to that old emails to the new one.

       

      Can some one tell me how to do a search in filemaker?

       

      Cheers

          Hi Arsim and welcome to the forum.

           

          If the email address is different there wont be much you can do, however it may be depending on how you are trying to search for the email address, the @ symbol is an operator so to search on an email address you will need to place the whole address in quote marks "name@domain.com"

           

          Give that a try and hopefully that will do the trick.
