Search using a patient's parents' names

I have sometimes wanted to search for a patient (baby or child) but only have the name of a parent to go on. This happened today when someone was referred to the clinic by "Chloe", whose baby girl (whose name Mum didn't know) I had treated.

Since I put the parents' details into the Billing details, with parents' names in the first line, I discovered today that I can run a search by searching the Patient file using "address" rather than the default "surname", and putting %Chloe% into the search box.

Make sense? Try it and see - it's brilliant!! By using the '%' sign before and after Chloe's name, it doesn't matter if "Chloe" appears at the beginning of the line or some way through it (i.e. first or second parent in the address). It will still be picked up.
