Interface Search Results Question

Hi All,

I have a quick question about the client interface search results. My instructions says:

"It must allow the user to search the data for all records, or for records where the name and/or location fields exactly match values specified by the user."

I assume that the second part means, you must allow the client to enter the exact name and location of a record. But I'm not sure about the first part (search the data for all records), does that mean entering any fields? or even sub-strings of any fields? How has anyone else interpreted this?

I suppose I could give two searching methods, one for name/location and a second for the first one that I don't understand .. !!

I hope someone has some ideas.

Thanks for any help.

James

Hi James,

I took 'search all records' to mean just that - returning all records held in the database without applying any criteria.

Regards,

Jon
