Wild Card Search

The ‘wild card search’ feature in Rev gives users the option to search for text values using an asterisk (*) to specify any number of characters followed by the characters that you can recollect. This feature comes especially handy when you want to search for variable values around a root word or number (which has been setup as a text field). The following example demonstrates how this feature works and how it can be used.

Example:

Let us search for all documents with invoice numbers that end in “72”

Open Rev search and type “*72” in the invoice number search field and click on search

 

 

The search lists all documents which have invoice numbers ending in “72” as shown in the picture below.

 

This feature works only for fields that have been set up to accept text values. (text fields accept both alphabets and numbers)
