Hi Guy,

Actually, Jerry is correct. Look a little more closely at the Windows Explorer search criteria and you'll see that there are two boxes:

"All or part of the file name:"


"A word or phrase in the file".

The latter is the one you're looking for.

Hi Jerry,

Unfortunately this is not what I'm looking for, this search function
searches on the filename itself but I need to find a specific string in
the body of the file.

If you have your IFS available as a mapped drive, you can use the windows
exploder F3 search function. I do it quite often.

Thanks, Jerry
