Wildcards in Queries

Topics in this Section

You can use these wildcards in query text and field text queries:
 
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.
 
NOTE To use wildcards to search for numbers, set SplitNumbers (described in the [Server] configuration section of the IDOL server online help) to false.
