How to wildcard search in winows mobile

by nwadel / November 26, 2004 12:05 AM PST

I am wondering does anyone know how to do a wildcard search in Pocket Excel using Windows Mobile 2003 SE Ver 4.2.In desktop excel when i want to search my book title database with two search words that are not consecutive in the title such as " The Barking Dog by Bob Brown" I would search dog#brown. However I can't do this in pocket excel, for one thing it is missing the option of "search by line" plus it doesn't seem to support wildcard searches. Does anyone know what would work? or where to go for help? I 've posted on and microsoft but no answers!! Thanks for any help,
