Date and String Searching

Date and String Searching

Date and String Searching

HI! Even I am still new to this site but I have learned a lot. People here are so generous with regards to their knowledge plus with matching examples. I have another problem with regards to searching by date and by names. I have just finished working on searching by their ID no. With DATE searching (i.e diplaying persons who will be having a birthday/schedule on this day) the user will have the option to select the year, month and the day. With NAME searching the user will type the character and the program will search the character typed on the database. As the user types the name their is a already a filtering done on list of person listed. I don't know if this is possible or if you     have a better suggestion.. Thanks a lot! and More Power!    

RE: Date and String Searching

I have a program that displays the results of a search on a index as the user is typing in the information.  It only works on strings so date fields will have to be indexed with the dtoc or dtos function.  THe program required a database to be open in the current work area.

If you want the program connect to my ftp server
server = ibs.internationalbid.net   (note there is no www.)
username = fpug  (lower case only)
password = 73897253
directory \sharedcode\showseek
filename showseek.zip

Since you need to enter a username and password, I suggest you get a program like cuteftp, webdrive , etc
You can download a shareware ftp program from www.tucows.com
