Using Wildcard Characters

You can use the following wildcard characters:

 

Wildcard Searches for

% (percent sign)

Any string of zero or more characters.

For example: Mo% searches for all names that begin with the letters mo (Mom, Morgan), %mo searches for all names that end with mo (Satchmo), and %mo% searches for all names that include mo (Mom, Satchmo, tomorrow).

_ (underscore)

Any single character.

For example: _ill searches for any four-letter names ending with the letters ill (Mill, Will)

[] (brackets)

Any single character within the specified range.

For example: [HD]an[eo]n searches for all names that begin with H or D, then an, then e or o, and then end with n (Hanson, Hansen, Danson, Dansen); [B-K]enson searches for all names ending with enson that begin with any single letter from B through K (Benson, Jenson)

[^] (caret)

Any single character not within the specified range.

For example: M[^c]% searches for all names beginning with the letter M that do not have the letter c as the second letter (MacPherson)

To use the %, _, [], or [^] characters as literal characters instead of wildcard characters, do the following:

Use square brackets around the percent sign, the underscore, and the open bracket [%], [_], and [[].

For example:

  • 5[%] searches for 5%

  • [_]n searches for _n

  • [[] searches for [

Use the close bracket by itself.

For example:

  • ] searches for ]

Use the dash as the first character inside a set of square brackets.

For example:

  • [-acdf] searches for -, a, c, d, or f
