Basic Queries

Basic Queries

Basic queries use simple text comparisons to find records that contain the query values. You can use text and the wildcard character (*) to query values.
The wildcard characters are special search symbols that you can use in basic queries to specify a text pattern instead of specific characters. You can use the asterisk (*) wildcard character to increase your chances of finding the records that you want. The wildcard characters are useful when you do not know the exact text or want to search for similar text.
The following table lists example search strings and explains how they function:
