Hour 3. Finding and Sorting Data > Creating Find Requests

Creating Find Requests

Begin by entering Find mode either from the command in the View menu or from the button at the top of the status area. (Custom layouts may provide Find buttons and other interface elements that automatically place you in Find mode.) This section shows you how to create a find request.

Creating the Simplest Find Requests

The simplest and most intuitive find requests are sufficient for many people. After you've entered Find mode, type a word or phrase into the field you want to search, and then perform the find. FileMaker locates all records in which the word or phrase appears at the beginning of words in the field into which you've typed it. (More complex searches are described in the following sections.)
