Hi,


I have a list of names.

Id like to type the first letters of the name and the first letters of 
the first name to retrieve all the names beginning with those letters.


for ex.

a list with

Gaskin Richard
Major Klaus
Major Klaudia
Rice Alex
Rossi Scott
Schenkel Jan


If I type in a "ask" dialog :

"klau maj"
or
"maj klau"


the result should be :
2
3

respectively the numbers of the lines where those chunk are present

I've tried wtih lineOffset but without success..

Can anyone help me ?
Thank you.

Greetings.
