Greetings all -

I currently build & maintain parcel maps in ArcView for a variety of clients. As Explorer Desktop has become increasingly more user friendly, I've installed it on some client's machines. I can search and locate parcels many different ways in ArcView. However, I was looking for a way to locate parcels based on specific attributes defined by the user. I've studied a bit on creating query layers, but I don't think that gets specific enough to pinpoint a certain tract. For example, one could search by Owner name, parcel ID #, acreage, etc. or any attribute associated with the tract I've created. Hopefully, it's not something so simple that I've overlooked. Looking forward to any suggestions!

Thanks in advance for your time and efforts
