I'm using ACT! 2012 Premium and I'm looking for a way to do a wildcard search through all fields in my database within Act itself. I have some contacts, and they use multiple 'screen names' but has some variation in the name.
Contact Joseph Smith
Screen name 1: JosephSmith
Screen name 2: Joe1985
Screen name 3: JoeCool
Screen name 4: ItsJosephSmith
Is there a way to search all fields by the keyword of Joe and have the search pull up screen name 2 & 3? I know there's a way do do an advanced search but I'd rather not have to create a new advanced search for all my ScreenName fields (I have 10 of them currently and may end up adding more.)
Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Seeing that you have Sage ACT! 2012, if you use the Search field in the upper right corner (Universal Search) - it will search all fields, notes, histories, attachments, and more for the value entered. You can also edit the criteria that will be searched (ex: 'Contacts') to narrow down the results.
