    Posted 13 days ago


    Is it possible to do a wild search in regular table view?

    Let's say I want to search for 

    pras* + eggs
    or 
    egg + olive


    Prashant is my name
    Prashant eats eggs with butter
    Prashant goes for rock climbing
    Prashant makes eggs with olive oil

    np,
    the syntax AND and OR in upper case have meaning as filter operators.

    pras AND eggs

    will give you hits where the search in any columns meet the criteria. The hits do not need to be on the same column.

    pres OR eggs will give more hits as it's an OR operator

    The search is not case sensitive.

    ya pretty handy and certainly most regular users would not think to try that.
