>>With page-at-a-time subfiles I 
 watch users laboriously type in the whole name on the look-up field over 
 and over.  I suggest they just type the first 5 letters or so, but as soon 
 as I look away they carefully type "Johnson, Dr.  Jonathon R."  and then 
 hit the enter key.>>
I don't understand. It seems to me that how you search a database has nothing 
to do with how you write your subfile. Virtually all of my subfiles are page at 
a time and users key in however many (or few) characters in the search field as 
they deem necessary.
