AAAAK5389F2_FORM16A_2010-11_Q3.pdf
AAAAK5389F2_FORM16A_2010-11_Q4.pdf

The user enters the token no. which is common for file.ex. AAAAK5389F1
I want when the user enters this token no. in txttoken
The gridview should be filled with all files containing this token no. i.e
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q1.pdf
AAAAK5389F1_FORM16A_2010-11_Q2.pdf
