    Filter by Form (Access 2K SR1)

    I want to search a text field for a phrase like "Tom and Jerry". When I use the Find tool and specify Match: Any part of field, it works fine. The only problem is I have to keep clicking Next to see all the records, as well as move the Find tool out of the way. When I try to use Filter by Form, there seems to be no way to specify Any Part of Field. How do I find 'Tom and Jerry' when it is part of a larger text field?

    Surround the text you are trying to search for with *'s.
    eg. *tom and gerry*
    This will find tom and gerry in any part of the field.

    Thanks Pat. It worked. I had previously tried that but left out the second *. Ah, typos, typos!
