Multiple character wildcard searches looks for 0 or more characters. For example, to search for electric, electrical or electricity, you can use the search:


You can also use the wildcard searches in the middle of a term.


Note: All the wildcard queries are executed against non-stemmed fields: EN_TI_S/mot* is converted to EN_TI/mot*

Note:PhraseQuery keeps the stemming option if no wildcards are found: EN_TI/"electric motor" is stemmed while EN_TI_S/"electric mot*" is converted to EN_TI/"electric mot*"

Note: You cannot use a * or ? symbol as the first character of a search.
