I have a form that I want to use to be able to search for records in a table.  The table has various field types...  short text, data, etc.  On the search form I want just one field where the user can enter a string of characters and then via a command button, have a datasheet form open to display the records that had the  string of characters ANYWHERE in the table fields.  I hope this makes sense.  Can it be done?
