  • Hi 

    In CRM there is a search box in each grid. When you enter data for search, it searches all the columns marked for the search in Quick find view.
    CRM shows all the rows where at least one of the quick find column matches with the search data.  While find the match, CRM uses OR conditions between the columns. 
    You can go to the customization then the quick find view details and find out which all columns has been marked for search.

  • @CRMurali - also remember the search looks for "begins with" rather than equals / exact match, and using a * wildcard at the beginning makes it behave as a "contains" (or "like")

    Hope this helps.
