Find By Driver's License results

Selecting OK while leaving the prompt empty will cause Collect! to display ALL records.

This function searches all debtor records looking at the Debtor DL field. Then, before leaving the debtor record Collect! will look at all debtor cosigner/other records, searching for a DL field that matches the search criteria.

If Collect! finds any matches, it displays a list of the matching records.

For example to find all instances of NJ214-77-8898 type 'NJ214-77-8898'.

To search for a set of characters in the middle of a DL values, type *77 (or whatever you need). The asterisk [*] tells Collect! to search all DL fields for a code containing the Find By Driver's License criteria.

For example, if you know there's a DL code you are looking for such as 'NJ214-77-8898', you could type '*214' and it will come up with both 'NJ214-77-8898' and 'WA214-77-7986'.

Searching with [*] is a lot slower than just typing the first few characters of the desired Zip because the system has to read every single key and search it for matching characters.

There is a difference in using the Find By Driver's License when you have entered your DL numbers inconsistently. Numbers entered as 'NJ214778898' are actually different from 'NJ214-77-8898' when compared for a match. It is important to enter all Driver's License numbers in a consistent way.

When the list is displayed, you can immediately start typing the exact Driver's License number you wish to find and Collect! will scroll through the displayed list to move you to the specific Driver's License number you may be looking for.

Once the row with your DL is highlighted, press ENTER or select the row with your mouse and Collect! will open the Debtor form. If the Driver's License you selected was in one of the cosigner/other records, the debtor to whom the cosigner/other record belongs will be displayed.

When you are ready, you can either back all the way out and return to what you were doing, or you can return to the list and select another row to work.

If you go too far, select Browse Find By Driver's License again and Collect! will retain what you previously searched for. This helps speed up your lookups.

Once you Cancel the list, or back out to another form, the matching Driver's License numbers list will be released.
