If you do not know the exact value you want to find, you can use the Any Part of Field option in the Match drop-down list.

3. Set any other options you want to use in the Find and Replace dialog box.

4. Click Find.

Find button

After you click the Find button the program will select records that match the specified criteria. When the first value is found, the button changes the caption to Find Next. Every time you click it, the program finds the next record.

Find All button

If you click the Find All button, the program selects all records that match the specified criteria at once.
