#QUERY and #FIND clearing DB
 
Hey,
It seems that those two functions are completly clearing queried db. Any idea how to avoid that, or shall i start learning sql?
Also, let's say i am looking for exacly 'yellow' by %find("yellow", View). It will return also db cells containing 'yellowish' etc.

I don't know what you mean by "clearing the queried db". You will have to explain that further.

As for the question about a find of "yellow" returning cells containing "yellowish", that is expected behavior. %find will find all cells that contain that string. It is a pure string match. You can, however, include spaces. If you have cells containing "yellow mold" and "yellowish mold", a search for "yellow " would find the first but not the second.

It's pretty simple indeed. Clearing means clearing. I once had a database and after i try to 'find' something inside of it, i no longer have that database, it's cleared to empty database with no records (unless i recover it manually from .bak file).

Please give step by step instructions for what you are seeing. Try to reproduce it in a new session.

My first guess is that you are not clearing the database, but rather are not connecting with it. But it is hard to say without knowing exactly what you are doing.

You need to do a #DBRESET and it will be back
