I have a very simple find need but I can't seem to figure it out. We have a music data base and all that I want to do is find all songs that start with "a". Either "A Dark Night", "Another time" or "Abacrombie". When I do a find simply with a in the Title field I of course get every song that has an a anywhere in the title. If I do an =a find I get any title that has a single a within the title.

Thanks for your help,

Mitch

Oh... FileMaker 3, sorry I just noticed that. OK then, make a calculated field of type text: Left( Title, 1 ) and search on that.
