Search 2 fields with same parameter

I want to be able to search two fields with the same parameter and I want to make it easy for the user.  Ideally they would click on the query and it would ask them for the parameter once and apply it to both fields.  I've created an advanced query that searches both fields and added it to the toolbar, but when you click it (on the toolbar) it doesn't ask for the parameter, it just runs it based on what it is saved as.  This would be similar to an Access query where you enter brackets (for example [enter company name]).

What you describe isn't an option with the ACT! program. You can make a feature request for consideration for a future version.
