Using * Wildcard

Previous Next

 

Add an asterisk within a string field as a placeholder for any unknown text. This makes it easier to collect objects whose name is only partially defined.

 

Name = donut

Returns objects whose name matches the word donut          

 

Name = donut*

Returns objects whose name has donut as a prefix, including donut itself

 

Name = *donut*

Returns objects whose name contains the word donut

 

Name = d*t

Returns objects whose name starts with 'd' and ends with 't', accepting any characters in between

 

Below is a table showing the items affected based on the wildcard being used.
