Data Search Tool

The Data Serach Tool allows you to search for a particular piece of data across tables and views of a schema/database. The search tool will look for the specified string in all tables/views until the maximum number of matches has been reached.

You can invoke the Data Search Tool from the 'Tools/Search Database' menu in the main toolbar of DB Solo.

After DB Solo has completed the search you will see the results screen that is divided into two sections. The upper part lists all the searched tables with the number of matches.

The values with a match will be colored differently than columns that do not match.
