Using the 'Split Screen' option
The 'Split Screen' option enables 2 sets of data to be viewed at the one time (e.g. a list of matching entries and details of a selected entry). To turn this option on/off use 'Split On/Off' on the menu bar. 'Split On' is best suited to screens with a resolution of 800x600 or higher.
For a more detailed explanation see Help.

Quick Search
Enter one or more words to search for anywhere in an entry into the 'Search for' box, then click 'Quick Search'. Only entries that contain all words entered, in any order, will be found.

To facilitate data entry and cover multiple forms of the one word, only the first few characters of each word need be entered. To search for phrases (i.e. two or more words in a particular order) include the words in double quotes. In the case of phrases, all words (except the last) must be entered in full.

For example:
  accom age
  couns disab richmond
  legal advice
  financ
  "bed and breakfast"

See Quick Search guidelines for other options and examples.
