Hi Trevor

It isn't a well known feature, but it is possible to search only the street name using '%' as a wildcard.

Basically by adding the % wildcard to the front of the search, the street number can be anything and it will still find it.



It is most useful when searching for part of an address, but it can also be used when searching other fields such as mobile or email.

When using this feature, it will not find the patient if the patient is linked through 'Bill to third party'. eg if a patient is linked to DVA, the patient will not appear if you type in %shannon in the above example.
