Global Search/Find: Return all rows containing a given string

I have issues database that utilizes two forms. One for provides a read only issues/task list and another form for add/update of issues. I'd like to be able to add an search text box to the summary form that will return each row/issue that contains the string entered by the user.

This is not nearly enough information. We need to know how you want to display these records, when you want this to happen, and what tables/fields are involved.

It would also help to know what you have tried to far.

But on a general note, have you tried a query using the Like comparison operator?
