Searching multiple fields

Hi, My intranet makes quite heavy use of FMP4 databases which are published using custom web pages and quite a lot of CDML to call scripts in the databases etc.

I upgraded to FMP5 unlimited because I wanted to publish databases that looked more like the forms created in the original database. FMP5 does this very well but (I have since learned) does not support scripts!

I can replace most of the scripts with calculation fields but cannot think of a way to perform a search on multiple fields in the database without using a script.

Basically, I need to use the contents of a single field to search multiple/all fields in the database.

Can anyone offer any help or advice? - Thanks, Grahame.

Join up all of the text fields into a calculation field (field1 & field2 & ...) then perform a single search on the calculation field!

Vaughan - Thanks for taking the time out to reply to my question. That's an excellent suggestion (and lateral thinking wink.gif" border="0). I'll take your advice and amend my database accordingly. Grahame.
