i have entered a number of client details into an excell spreadsheet.
Each cleints names and corresponding reference number is listed in fields.
occasionaly i need to search for a particular name however the find facility will not allow this.
It will not find any name in the sheet at all.
Could you please help me with this proble.
Thanks you in advance.

If you are searching for the name Brown (as an example), try typing in *bro*

You could try auto filter

Select all active cells (A1 > Ctrl+Alt+End) then Data > Filter > Auto Filter then search the name in the drop down list.

Sorry should have mentioned then you can do a custom search.

EG - equals B* for Brown etc
