Field must match exactly

Switch this option on if you want an exact match. In the example shown we are searching for the string "100" anywhere in the Code column.

Case sensitive search

Switch this option on if you want the case of characters to be significant. This option is only available if the database supports case-sensitive searches and the field being searched is case-sensitive.

Include Standards in the search

By default standards are included in your search. Switch this option off if you want to exclude standards.
