Digging into the past, I found this tip which is still valid in the day-to- day work in a school, for the times when we want to find students who have data in a specific field (this will not work in a date field, or a field that has a drop down table).By using a % symbol in a field when in Find mode, it will return a listing of records with non-null values in this field.  Example: I want to find all courses that are coded for Carl Perkins. My screen shot looks like this ...

Recurring Jobs
