Searching for phrases

To search for phrases, wrap the value string in "double quotes". An example of phrase matching is to match the field originator with the phrase “John Smith”.
  1. In the Search Text box, enter:

    originator:"John Smith"

  2. In the Results options section, select the components you want to search.
Wildcards are supported within phrase matching. For example, to match records that contain the text "John Smith" or "John Smithe" in the Originator metadata field, use the following query text:
originator:"John Smith*" 

You can also escape embedded quotes in a phrase using back slash \.
