Lesson 18. Searching for Data > Using the Find Feature

Using the Find Feature

The Find feature is useful for locating a particular record that you have previously entered. For instance, if you keep a database of customers, you might want to find a particular customer's record quickly when he is ready to make a purchase, so you can verify his address. Or, to continue the kennel example I've been using, you could quickly find the record for the dog with the call name of Sheldon, to look up his birth date.

Caution

Finding More Than One Record If you need to find several records at once, Find is not the best tool because it finds only one record at a time. A better tool for finding multiple records is a filter, discussed in Lesson 19, "Sorting, Indexing, and Filtering Data."
