This feature permitted the searching for a specific combination of characters imbedded in the data records. for example, it is possible to locate all last mames beginning with "MC" or "MAC" The introduction of the "VARIABLE STRING SEARCH" made possible the inclusion of more than one classificarion code, and the searching for that code. This greatly increased the flexiblity of the search routine. In version 2.92 this search ability has been extended to the classification code sorts of all print and utility routines. For example, if the Class Code field contains the following data. "SJS/412/412A/HOME" If the sort criteria inputted is 412, the program will print all records(addresses) containing 312 and 412A in class code field. If the slash limiter is included, ie "412/", only the fields containing "412" will be printed. The string search has only been extended to the classification code field in the print and utilities routines.
