I can't search for CZ. Less than 3 letters.

    Eric has addressed this before, but you may not have been here to hear it. The index requred to run the search function is huge, even when it is "set" to only allow a minimum three-character search. To allow a two-character search, it would become too large and slow to use, and be a drag on the board and the server.

    Think carefully about other model numbers or names that may appear in discussions with the items you want to search for, and look for these other terms instead.

    Think of it as a challenge... ;f

    threads a couple days old, however here's something you can try... CZ*. That makes it a 3 character search, but its really 2 characters with a wildcard, so it should still work for you.
