Wildcards in Queries

Use Wildcard matching sparingly, because it slows HPE IDOL Server performance.

You can use the following Wildcard characters in query Text and FieldText queries:

? to match one character.
* to match zero, one, or more characters.

You can use the UnstemmedMinDocOccs parameter in the [Server] section of the configuration file to specify the number of documents in which a term must occur to consider it in a Wildcard search.


To use Wildcards to search for numbers, set SplitNumbers (described in the [Server] configuration section of the HPE IDOL Server Reference) to False.
