You may perform a wildcard search on a company name or phone number by placing a “?” after the name or number. BINCS will search by each individual word (up to three words). Example: WOOD WORKING? The partial company name must contain at least 3 characters in addition to the “?” The company name field will ignore common words such as “the” and “and.” Example: ASP?

The phone number must contain at least 6 digits in addition to the “?” The phone number field must include the area code and the exchange code. Example: 616555?

When entering Company or SIC you may further narrow the search by selecting the corresponding state field. Searching by the state alone does not constitute valid search criteria.

NOTE: Using partial searches will increase processing time and may time out the page.
