Search by County now available

You are now able to search for listings by County. If you are on a search screen in RE/Xplorer, click Edit Search (in the upper left), go to New Fields and select County. This will add the County field to your search screen, and then you can use the lookup to select the specific county you want.

If you are in PC Access, you can go to a blank line in your search and type county= and then the name of the county you want. You can also select County from the lists of fields at the top of the search screen. Hit the Page Down button to navigate through the pages of fields. County is at the end of the list (number 102).

Keep in mind- you will not be able to input a County when entering a listing- the County field will automatically populate based on the town your listing is in.
