Programmieren mit dBASE PLUS: exactMatch
Determines whether rowset searches are conducted using a partial string or an exact string match.
exactMatch allows you to determine what constitutes "equal to" when performing rowset searches. When exactMatch is set to "true", the default setting, field values in subsequent searches will be evaluated as a "match" only when they are identical to your search string.
When you set exactMatch to "false", a partial string, or "begins with" search is performed. Searching for the string "S", for example, will find "Smith" and evaluate it as a match.
