Global Enhancements

Enhanced Auto-Complete

In previous versions this feature only considered the beginning of the text in the searched fields. Now, when using the updated feature, your search criteria is compared with all words within the searched fields. For example, if you have a customer named Allen’s Appliance Repair and a customer named Appliance Services, typing Appl in the Customer No field results in a list that includes both customers. The number of fields included in the search has been expanded to include the ability to search for vendors by phone number. Try typing the phone number (digits only) in the vendor no. field.

 

Build Search Index Utility

In order to activate the enhanced auto-complete feature, run the Build Search Index utility on the Library Master Utilities menu.

When running the utility it updates the index for all of your companies. Use the Task Scheduler to automatically run the indexing utility on a regular basis.

Full Text Search Option in Lookup Windows

A full text option has been added to the Search list in the Lookup windows. When Full Text is selected, search criteria is compared with the data in all columns available in the lookup window. The search criteria must match the beginning of a word. For example, if you have a customer named Market Supplies and another customer named Village Market, if you type Mark in the search results, Village Market will not show up.
