I have a memo field within a form, I also have a button which launches the inbuilt find function within access. When I search for 'HSBC' for instance, it shows me the first record with that word in it and I click find next.. until I reach a record where 'HSBC' has been found in this context 'HSBC1' then whenever I click find next, it fails to go to the next record and refreshs the current record however if I click to the next record and then click find next it goes to the next occurance of 'HSBC'! This happens whenever I search for any word within the memo field, and whenever it is occumpanied by another character other than a space. Please Help!
