    Default Wildcard Searches

    Hello

    Showing the age of my customers here. Alas, I am of the same generation!!

    Is there any way in the desktop I can allow the user to do the old fashioned MSDOS wildcard search.

    For example a text field contains 14" stainless steel bar

    He wants to do a search such as *.less* or he might want to do 1*.*less*.bar

    Heavens its tired me writing it out!

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Kind regards

    Alex

    Looks like CONTAINSI() might work as well.
