Can't find record

Recommended Posts


I have a table called WeighbridgeDocket with an Auto-enter Serial text field called WDN

The Auto-enter Serial format is MEC001527

When I try to Find a record with a WDN I know exists, I get the message "no records match this request"

The Find function works as expected with any other field on this layout.

Any suggestions as to why this may be???

I am not sure how to say this succinctly, but when I have encountered problems like this is the past the usual culprit turns out to be that the field is defined wrong for the data it contains.  For example, I defined a numeric field-type but then my serial numbers also had letters in them. 

Other times I was using a global field in which to enter the search term, and that field was defined different from the actual field to be searched.
