Form Web Part Newbie

  Asked By: Dianna    Date: Sep 22    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 936

how do I make the form web part return partial matches?

i.e. if I search for "x" it will return every word that has an "x" in
(box, xerox, fox, xxx, xbox, etc)

if you can point me to a web page that would be helpful as well ...

sure ..

basically you have to add your list as a data view ...
then make sure the filter (on the data view) is set to "contains [input
parameter]" for the field you want to search  (that is the trick to
getting it to give back results for partial  matches) ...
then you set your web  part connection from your form  web part  ...

it is explained a little better here (with screen shots) ...

correct article doesn't come up click on "Search a List without SQL"
