Searching for a Specific Row in a Data Store

What function do I use if I want to search a particular data store for the first letter of certain items?

For instance, I have this list:


If I search for a row beginning with the letter o, I get olule. When I use the Findnext function to go to the next row beginning with o, I end up with kamtibo! (I guess because there’s an o in it.) Why don’t I get okwi?

Use the following Find command:

 ll_Row = dw_1.Find( 'Left( colname, 1 ) = ~'o~'', 1, dw_1.RowCount() )

To find the next occurrence, repeat the command but make the start row greater than the last row found by one:

 ll_Row ++ll_Row = dw_1.Find( 'Left( colname, 1 ) = ~'o~'', ll_Row, dw_1.RowCount() )
