Item search function

Would it be possible to change the item search function to perform a *contains text* search within the item's description on both the item codes section and the billing page?  At present the item codes section returns a *begins with* search and on the billing page, the exact item code is required.

I have previously posted a similar item but think it may have been in the wrong section.  Would love to see this implemented.

I use % in front of what I'm looking for in the item codes section.  That gives you everything that contains the word you are looking for.  eg %brace

It doesn't work in billings unfortunately,

Yeah thanks Syd, that's a great tip!!  Still leaves the issue with the billings page search and this is probably where the function would be most useful to reduce delays when processing a patients' bills :)

Barcode scanners have reduced this billing issue quite a bit for us. :)
