 Help with "Find" mode question
I just started using FMP 5.5 for Mac after transferring a large
database from Excel for Mac. I have a player file made up of kids in
many high school homerooms. I'm trying to figure out how to filter all
senior homerooms together in a list. The homerooms start with K or A
followed by one or two numbers or letters (i.e. KS1, A1, Ae1). I can't
figure out how to set up the find in the homeroom box to give me what
I want (specifically want all homerooms that begin with K or A)

For an 'or' find (everything that starts with K OR A):

1) Go into find mode
2) enter a K into the homeroom field
3) CTRL-N on Windows or CMD-N on Mac to create a new request
4) enter an A into the homeroom field
5) perform find
