  • Tips for Searching

    • Alphanumeric characters may be entered into blank text fields. The blank text fields can be searched using a wildcard (%) in combination with a series of letters. – For example, if somewhere in the name of the vendor there is the

    word "flower", the wildcard may be used in the following method: %flower% - for vendors who may have flower anywhere in their name.

    • Depending on how the vendor entered their information, it is often better to use less information when searching. – For example, searching for the vendor name "Acme Office Stores, Inc"

    will not return any results if the supplier registered as "Acme Company - Office Stores Incorporated". Using just the word Acme is a better entry.
