Example... when you search for "Steak Out" , it displays items with "out" first. Anyway... I would hope that if programmed correctly, "Steak Out" should pop up for the first few, then a few for "steak" only, then a few for "out" only, then a few that has steak or out embedded or part of a word. If that make sense. Its a mdb that doesn't search and display properly. It needs re-programmed to search and display data correctly, whether ther search term is 1, 2 or 3 words.
