Custom Wildcard Searches

You can perform your own customized wildcard searches --- this can be a very powerful method of locating documents.

Wildcard Character:   %

A wildcard search is performed by pre-pending, post-pending, or framing the wildcard character % to the search criteria.

For example, you're looking for information about a lot in the Hilltop subdivision. You know the lot number begins with a 5, but you're not sure if it contains a suffix such as 5A. By entering Lot 5, Hilltop subdivision only documents relating to Lot 5 in the Hilltop subdivision will be returned.

In this example you would enter 5% into the lot field and select Hilltop from the subdivision list. All documents concerning the Hilltop subdivision and lots that BEGIN with 5 would be shown in the result list. This would include lot 5, 5A, 5D, 52, 593, etc.

Another variation on this example: you enter %5 into the lot field and select Hilltop from the subdivision list. All documents concerning the Hilltop subdivision and lots that END with 5 would be shown in the result list. For example 15, 245, A5, etc.

Final variation on this example: you enter %5% into the lot field and select Hilltop from the subdivision list. All documents concerning the Hilltop subdivision and lots that contain a 5 would be shown in the result list. For example, 5, 5A, 15, 645, A5, 5U, 445566, etc.
