Field restriction

The field specified in a find field must be a field that exists in the business component for the applet for the find object definition.

Query differences

The Find dialog box and a query by example (QBE) can have different behavior for multi-value fields because the Find dialog box generates the same query as if you did an EXISTS query on the field in QBE. You can verify this by embedding your QBE expression with Exists (); for example, Exists ("Aga*").

QBE supports both types of querying, but to keep the Find dialog box simple, Siebel applications implement a query that works in all cases. If you want to mimic the behavior of the non-Exists version with the Find dialog box, create a join from the primary ID field for the MVLink to the table containing the data. Then add a field on the table you joined to and point your find field to this new field.
