Find By State prompt

A list of matching records will be displayed.


Find By State 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 State field. Then, before leaving the debtor record Collect! will look at all debtor cosigner/other records, searching for a State 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 Washington type 'Washington'.

To search for a set of characters in the middle of a name, type *Wa (or whatever you need). The asterisk [*] tells Collect! to search all State fields for a state containing the Find By State criteria.

Searching with [*] is a lot slower than just typing the first few characters of the desired State 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 State you wish to find and Collect! will scroll through the displayed list to move you to the specific State you may be looking for.

Once the row with your State is highlighted, press ENTER or select the row with your mouse and Collect! will open the Debtor form. If the State 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 State 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 State list will be released.
