Find By Index 2

This Find By option searches for the Index 2 that matches the data you entered.

Find By Index 2 prompt

A list of matching records will be displayed.

Find By Index 2 results

This function searches all Attachment records looking at the Index 2 field.

If Collect! finds any matches, it displays a list of the debtor records that have an attachment that matched the Find By Index 2 criteria.

For example to find all instances of Mortgage type 'Mortgage'.

To search for a set of characters in the middle of a Index 2 values, type *M (or whatever you need). The asterisk [*] tells Collect! to search all Index 2 fields for a value containing the Find By Index 2 criteria.

For example, if you know there's an Index 2 value you are looking for such as 'Mortgage', you could type '*M' and it will come up with both 'Mortgage' and 'Medical'.

Searching with [*] is a lot slower than just typing the first few characters of the desired Index 2 value because the system has to read every single key and search it for matching characters.

When the list is displayed, you can immediately start typing the exact Index 2 value you wish to find and Collect! will scroll through the displayed list to move you to the specific Index 2 value you may be looking for.

Once the row with your Index 2 is highlighted, press ENTER or select the row with your mouse and Collect! will open the Debtor form.

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 Index 2 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 Index 2 values list will be released.
