There are lots of ways to find data: wildcard, zoom, find, select, popups, quiz select…
Here we start with the simple: the wildcard.
Normally, when we want to look up something, we just type in the name, or the first part of the name. In the Vendor master program, we’re looking for a vendor called Warehouse Club, Inc.
When using the search option (adding a ? (question mark) to the text of a field), the behavior was to display the resulting first closest match in the field. You could then use the Page Up and Page Down keys to cycle through the records that matched.
We have changed that to automatically open the popup window displaying all the matching records in the list. An example is the main A/R Transaction list window:
Entering House? and pressing the Enter key will open the popup list with all the Customers containing House in the name.
