very specific search

Recommended Posts

In my database I want to search all records for the first letter in the first word of one field that contains company names, because right now if I serch for all company names that start with "A" I get all company names that have an "A" in their second or third word but not the first word of the comapny name. Is there a way of doing this?

Create a new calculation field "First_Letter" and set it to:

Left( Company_Name, 1 )

Then search on this new field.
