Q

Can I use a wild card in a @DbLookup formula?

I need to use a wild card in a @DbLookup formula.

For example:

@DbLookup("":"NoCache";@DbName;"
myView";"*smith*"2); [which doesn't work].

Is there a solution? Thank you.

@DBLookup does not allow for wildcard values. However, in ND6 there is a keyword, PARTIALMATCH. If used, it returns a match if the key matches the beginning characters of the column value.
