Thanks for the response. I should have been more clear in my question. I can add more fields to my Array but if I add them in the function as well, it looks for the combination of the colums...like an "AND" statement...what I want is an "OR" clause...if it is in this column or that column...so I can search through every column in the datagrid.
Another question I have is how to use a variable for the column name. I could loop through it and dynamically put a column name in if it would accept a variable but I can figure out why it won't. In other words, replace the red city with a variable...it keeps giving a Flash player error says it needs a field name.
Thanks for the comments.
