Although the Find-O-Matic user guide indicates that you can search for individuals using the nickname field, I found this to not be the case. Is there a special setting that perhaps I've not checked that will do this?
My example is this (in case it's situational):
Looking for a person named Ben Johnson. His real name is Karl Benjamin Johnson and his nickname is Ben. Our database has a Benjamin Johnson (different person) and when I type 'Ben Johnson' in Find-O-Matic the Benjamin Johnson is the only person that shows up (oddly, his nickname field is blank).
