    Searching any part of all fields by default - Access 2010

    I seem to remember that earlier versions of Access had a setting to make the Ctrl+F search default to searching any part of every field in a form. Is there a way to do this in 2010? Thanks.

    In 2002 (only older version I have up and working at the moment), there were three options for Default Find/Replace Behavior: Fast Search, General Search, and Start of Field Search. Those same options are available in 2010 (and presumably in 2007 and 2013 as well) by clicking the File tab in 2010 and choosing Options and then selecting Client Settings on the left-hand pane. I believe you want to select the General Search option. Hope that helps.
