You can enter a '*' wildcard character to employ a 'fuzzy' search. The '*' will match up to 80 characters regardless of their value. For example, 'a*b' will match any instance of the character 'a' followed by up to 80 characters of any type followed by the character 'b' [all on the same line of text].

When entering the text string, remember that the case of the characters being entered is ignored.

Hope this helps.
