Results > Search and Retrieve > Query for Nonalphanumeric Characters > Text

Specify your entire query string including the nonalphanumeric characters. Note that if any of these are special characters, you must treat them appropriately.
~ [ ] * ? : ( ) "
If you configured IDOL server not to treat any of these characters as a separator by specifying them for the DiminishSeparator configuration parameter, remove the character from the search string.
Alternatively, you can instruct IDOL server to interpret the following characters as normal characters in query syntax by setting the IgnoreSpecials action parameter to true for the Query or GetQueryTagValues action:
*?":() and Boolean/Proximity operators, for example AND, NOT, OR, NEAR and so on.
