Yes. If the list is a combination of codes and text, you can search both code (normally in the beginning) text  (normally ”any” occurrence) to load the code.

It might be very useful sometimes.

Fixed if you download again:


Note that this combo also is useful within complex grids. You do not have to play with lists within lists.
