Quick Tip:

Searching Higher ASCII
If you look at the storage options for a field in Manage Database, and you see that it is set to a particular language, you may not think much about what it can do for you. Try changing the language to Unicode. This will make FileMaker index include upper ASCII characters, so you can search for values without enclosing them in quotes. For example, you will be able to search for an email address by including the at sign (@).
