Search Manager Pro


The Search Manager Professional includes six ready-to-go user interfaces you can use to provide searching capabilities royalty free within your Microsoft Access application. Call a search interface from any form to filter the form or call the search interface to modify the row source for any combo or list box. Include our Advanced Search engine in your application so your users can create and save their own searches as well.


Product Overview

You can even use the Search Manager Pro's generic datasheet form to search any table or query. These forms can be opened from any button on your data entry or display form or can be opened from any event in your form.

The Search Manager contains six different search interfaces that provide different functionality based on a particular situation. (click on the image to enlarge the view)

Smart Search – The Smart Search dialog allows you to define multiple searches for your form by simply entering a few fields in a table. When your user selects a search type, a list of all records is displayed based on the fields and sort order you specify. When your user selects a record, they return to the form they were originally on and depending on your coding, either sees one record in a filtered form or the specific record in an unfiltered form. The Smart Search will remember the most frequently selected searches and display those the next time the form is opened. For example, if there is one search that is used most of the time, this search is displayed first each time you open a smart search interface.


Advanced Search – The Advanced Search dialog provides a powerful and flexible search interface. With it you can find just about anything using simple or complex criteria. The criteria you enter is done with very easy to use selection fields and the interface takes care of all the syntax that is necessary. An unlimited number of searches can be saved and retrieved. Searches are saved by name with the criteria and the table/query they are based on. This dialog is modeled after the Microsoft Office advanced file search dialog. Users who are familiar with this type of dialog will find it easy to use.


Flex Search – This type of search allows you to use a single form for all your form searching needs. It gives you the flexibility to search for one or all of the fields listed. You can search using partial or exact keywords as well as adding operands to your searches. The user can even change the search options on the fly. An example of the Flex Search interface is displayed below.


Simple Search - The Simple Search interface can be used to create a filter for a form, form control, or report. You can also use this type of search to search for data independently from a form or report and view data using a generic form. The Simple Search interface is a simplified version of the Advanced Search interface. Up to 12 different criteria lines can be specified.


Smart Select - The Smart Select interface has the same look and feel as the Smart Search, but the Smart Select allows for multiple selections. The Smart Select will remember the most frequently selected searches and display those the next time the form is opened. For example, if there is one search that is used most of the time, this search is displayed first each time you open a smart select interface.


Total Search - The Total Search interface can be used to search for data within multiple tables in a database. You can choose to search only linked tables, only local tables, or all tables. You must also specify a data type and value to search for.
