When I enter "Barcoding A" in the search field and then click the Find Button, I get records with either Barcoding A or Barcoding B in that field.
How to I get only the exact match?
If I remove the space will that do it or should I change the value list so they are more different?

Just put it in quotes, or to be even more restricting, put it in quotes with a double "=" sign. e.g.

=="Barcoding A"

A double equals sign means "Match Field Content". For a nice rundown of FileMaker's Find operators, see: http://www.dwaynewright.com/filemaker-thoughts/2011/3/6/filemaker-find-symbols-search-operators.html
