searching by custom field

I'm wondering if there is a way to ad a custom field (cell phone) as a search field? (Example searching a missed call/no voicemail to see who called)?

Re: searching by custom field

I understand the custom field, but how are you going to put the information of the call unanswered and without a voice message in that field?


It is important to back up the database before each change of the structure or design of the screen - and place a copy of this ZIP file on a USB drive or external disk for more security


(File - Backup - Database - click en BROWSE To place the ZIP file in your Documents folder)

Re: searching by custom field

What do you mean by "as a search field"? All fields can be searched (Lookup > Other fields).
