    I can't search it except with soundex. The other entries seem to show up fine. Does anyone know why this would be?

    This question should have been posted in the Help forum.

    We don't understand your question.  Can you please clearly explain what the nature of the problem is?

    When I use the search bar on the top right corner to search for "Aaaa" it says "No result found" but when I use soundex search to search for the entry, it finds the entry. I'm wondering what could be wrong?

    The search for other names seem to return a result ok.

    There is a bug report for this.

    PGV does a database search for all records containing the string.  However, this can result in a match on private or non-genealogical data.  It then needs to check that the search string wasn't found in private/internal data.  So, it excludes matches in _PGVU, etc.  You have a match in _PGVU.  The logic is/was wrong, and it wasn't checking to see if the search string *also* exists elsewhere in the record.

    Soundsex searches the name table directly, and doesn't use the same logic.

    I *thought* this one had been fixed.  What version of PGV are you using?
