Hi All.

Have a wee problem again.

I have a field ItemList in a stack My Database. I have a menu item that 
says go to stack FilterItemList. This works OK and I get a stack with one 
box (ItemListFilter) and one Button with the following script

on mouseUp
   filter fld "ItemList" of stack "My Database" with field "ItemListFilter" 
of stack "FilterItemList"
end mouseUp

This works almost perfectly, however I need to have the exact phrase in the 
search box that is in one of the lines of the list "ItemList".

What I want is someone to type in something Eg scale that can search for 
descale or descalled etc.

I tried the script

on mouseUp
   filter fld "ItemList" of stack "My Database" with field 
"*ItemListFilter*" of stack "FilterItemList"
end mouseUp

But this does not work.


Any ideas where I'm going wrong?

Cheers
Bob
