Touchpoint Software Documentation | Last Name

Last Name

This condition located on the Personal category tab in Search Builder allows you to search for people by their Last Name, using all of part of the name.

Using Ranges

The search will look at the entire name, so be careful when using <= or <= and a letter. If you want one group whose names start with A through names that start with M, use Before N.

Another Reminder

The system will consider all the letters in the name. So, when using Equals N, for example, you will literally get only those whose last name is N, not Nance or Naylor.

You could, however, use After or Same and the letter N and return those whose last name begins with an N or any other subsequent letter of the alphabet.

If you also add Before or Same and the letter P, you would get those who names begin with N or O, and anyone whose names was exactly P. But you would not get those whose last name is Patt or Passon.
