Searching - Exact Match or Boolian

Postby Kernos » Sun Feb 11, 2018 12:38 pm

Is there a way to do an exact match of a string in a field? For example I have several Titles which are "V", hard to find easily. I tried =V, which did not work.

Also can one use Boolean operators. It should be possible with a MySQL database.

The words in the filter field are used in an "and" search, to switch to bolean add "or". You can group words for exact match of a group of words with quotes.

Cats Dogs = cats AND dogs
Cats or Dogs = cats OR dogs
"Cats Dogs" = cats dogs
