Search for column - not shown on results

Postby JohnHennesey » Tue Nov 05, 2013 10:25 pm

When searching by column name [which it allows] it shows the name of the table in the "object name" column - not the column itself. It does show "Column" in the "matches on" column, so it is aware of the column names. Is there a way to have the column name listed vs. the table name?

I searched the forums for a bit but couldn't find anything relating to it - I apologize if this has already been asked and I missed it.

Thank you in advance,

I agree, that would be a really nice feature to have.
I have sometimes hundreds of columns in table.
So having just the table name in the results list is not of much help..
After that I must anyway open the table and search for the column manually.
Ideally I'd rather click on the column name in the results list, and navigate to it instantly.
Please add!
