Wildcards
  • Use * to specify zero or more unknown characters.
  • Use ? to specify exactly one unknown character.
    • Examples:
      • "john*on" will return "JOHNSON, JOHNSTON"
      • "mar?" will return "MARK, MARC" but not "MARCUS"
Sounds Like (Name fields only)
  • Prefix your search with ~ to force a "sounds like" lookup.
    • Examples:
      • "~win" will return "NGUYEN, WINN, WYNN..."
      • "~mark" will return "MARK, MARC..."
Exact Spelling
  • By default all Name fields return results which "begin" with the term entered and other fields return those which "contain" a substring. Prefix your search with ! to force a lookup of the "exact" term entered.
    • Examples:
      • "!john" will return "JOHN" but not "JOHNSON"
      • "!marc" will return "MARC but not "MARCUS"
