Search: Ability to search by partial account name

I am new to MYOB and have noticed when I go to disburse a charge / invoice to an Acct# and Job number that you can only search by the account number.

This is quite impractical as i would have to memorise over 400 account numbers to be able to disbuse.

With other accounting programs I have used you can do a search for the words or vehicle registration to isolate the only accounts set up with those words in them. Eg. Searching for the word "fee" or "repairs" etc.


Is it possible for you to upgrade the search fields so you can also search for words? It would save a lot of time processing invoices and make this part of MYOB more practical for our comapny and I am sure for a lot of others as well.


Thanks, Bec

    Hi Everyone


    When selecting for accounts using the AccountRight browser interface users the search function will look for any account number or name that matches what you type in. This does include partial account names.

    Change your settings in preferences to search by account name not number. I think this is what you want.
