Search function


New Member
I can not find the right way to mabe a text search in a field.
I have the database "cutomers". I am able to search within the grid view. But how can i find names which are not 100% like the ones on the customers database?

search for "shan" shall find existing name "Shannahan". The grid view has the "LIKE" function, that will be needed in a field.

Hi George,

You should be able to perform a soft search by adding the % character to the beginning or the end of the value you are entering. This should return the result you are expecting in the grid view.

Let me know if you have any questions on this.
