Wildcard searching Lookups

I often find I want to find someone or a company in ACT!, however I can only remember part of their name - wildcard searching to the rescue.

If I do a company lookup for “outback”, I only get returned a list of companies that begin with “outback”.

However, if I do a company lookup for “%outback” - note the percent sign prefixing the search term, I get a list of all companies that contain the word “outback”.

This is quite useful and can be used on any of the fields, not just the company field.
