When trying to find amounts unless you type in $10,000 with the $ and comma the amount is no longer found?

So if you just type the numbers you can't find i.e. 10000

 

I am sure this worked in earlier versions?  

 

"Ctrl, Shift F - (FIND) Function"

Current Status: Maybe later

Hi @BooksInTheCloud

 

Thank you for your feedback in regards to AccountRight.

The Advance search option i.e. CTRL + SHIFT + F is designed to find a string of data in the table. Basically if you are searching for 10000 it will look for 10000 in the table which is different string than 10,000. I've marked your idea as Maybe later, as it maybe something that we may look into future down the track for AccountRight but not at this time and within the current advance search functionality.

I tested it in AccountRight 2015.2 and it does the same as AccountRight 2015.4 i.e. will not bring up values if you search without the comma separator.

Hi @BooksInTheCloud


You might have been thinking about the search feature for the Card List search (not advance search) this actually searches without the need for commas.

Hi @BooksInTheCloud


No worries, glad I help.

Like I said above in the initial marking of this idea the advance search option will search the character values and therefore the comma is required. Having said that it is marked as Maybe Later for something we consider in the future.
