Search Engine in NAV
I want a free-form search tool to search all NAV data for strings or regular expressions.

There are also a few addons or apps you could try, such as NAV-X Search: http://apps.microsoft.com/windows/en-gb/app/nav-x-search-free/791011e5-5101-4db8-ba52-9a3bc73001e0

You can do full text searches with SQL server, however I would imagine the performance hit would be huge. Maybe I'm wrong, though.

Of course, it would need to respect permissions when determining what to display to the user.

I once wrote something like this based on some of the core elements in Nav and using some patterm matching functions and soundex searching.
Need to be careful what you want to seach for though !
