DataAssist Search 'contains' not 'exact match'

DataAssist Search 'contains' not 'exact match'

I have an old version of DataAssist which generally works fine. I want to carry out a check through a database 'clients' which contains (amongst other things) forename, surname and postcode.

I want to design a search where there are 2 input fields 'name' and 'postcode' and where the system checks if the forename contains the name input, or the surname contains the name input or the postcode contains the postcode input.

I have it working so it check if the surname is an exact match or the postcode is an exact match but am not sure how do do what I want. Is it possible?
