Accent mark



Hi, I write from Mexico.

I would like to know if there is a way to make the finder ignore accent marks. I've captured in my database words like "Juárez" but I would like the finder to report results even if the public type "Juarez" (whithout the "´" mark in "a"). Is that possible?

Thank you in advance.

Hello Israel!

The solution really depends on how technical you are. If you can manage SQL queries, you can try using COLLATE with latin1 (ASCII) to perform this:

FROM Table 
WHERE Name COLLATE Latin1_General_CI_AI Like '%cafe%' COLLATE Latin1_General_CI_AI

If you are not too technical, you can use a simple SOUNDEX query

The application is extremely simple: if you type soundex(value), the query returns 'V400'. It is designed to group 'similar' words, but it also ignores diacritics


Here is the source document:
