Can I Search the Middle of a Word or Search String?

X1 does not currently support searches for text in the middle of a string using wildcards. We do support whole word matches and partial matches at the beginning of text (open-ended searches). 

You must enter the beginning characters of a word for X1 Professional to find a match. For instance, you cannot search for the word 'group' by entering: roup.

Rather, you must enter the beginning characters of a word for X1 to find a match.

To limit your results to the word 'Larry' itself, add an equal sign to the end of the string. Therefore, your search would be: larry=

While we do hope to offer true wildcard searching in the future, it is not yet on our roadmap. 

For more information, please refer to X1's Search Rules: http://www.x1.com/support/search-rulesAdditionally, we have a flash tutorial available on the website at http://www.x1.com/support/tutorial/x1_getting_started.html that can help.
