For additional functionality, you can use the following characters for special text searches:
- Asterisk (*) = Searches for everyone who has any data for this field.
- Exclamation Mark (!) = Searches for everyone who has no data for this field.
- Asterisk(*) + Text = Treats the asterisk as a wildcard. For instance, you could search for all people who had a last name starting with "Sm" by searching the last name field for "Sm*". Conversely you could search for all people who had their last name ending with "son" by searching the last name field for "*son".
- Surrounding Double Quotes = Searches text fields for that exact value (e.g. searching "ball" will only return ball, not basketball or softball)
