My OS is win 7 prof 64 bit and I use Office 2007.  I have a small and simple database, where I have a Form that displays the data.  whenever I want to do a search, I usually place the cursor in the required field, and then do a control +F, and it brings up a dialog box to enter the search criteria.  But the "Match" criteria defaults fo " Whole Field".  Is there anyway I can change this to "Any part of the field" as the default.
Thank u.

With the DB open, click file (or the office button) and click "Options" at the bottom.

Select "Client Settings" on the left, then about half way down, you'll find "Default find/replace behavior".  I believe "general search" is what you want.

Alt H, then 'a'

in response to Jim Dettman, thank u for your response.  But in my Access 2007, I do not get what u gave. when I click on the Office button, with the db open or Form open, I only see Access Options.  And when I click on this, I see : Popular; current database; datasheet; object designers, etc. etc.
Hope u are using the same Access version as mine.  thank u.

look in the Advanced options, but still it will not let you change the default setting.

In 2007 select Access Options - Advanced. Under Editing, the fourth option is Default find/replace behavior. Select General Search as Jim stated above.

Thanks for jumping in Flyster!

I was looking at 2010.   I think of 2010/2007 being one in the same, but there are differences.

@ jegajothy

 That setting is there...little hard to find but it is there.

Jim.

Glad to help. I too have 2007 in a Window 7 Pro 64-bit environment.

@ Jim- I'll have to take a look at my laptop. It has 2010. Thanks.
