In EPDM, if you use a string containing spaces,search will use that string to form OR conditions eg.; 2 cpv will result all files containing 2 OR cpv.
try "2 cpv" (in DOUBLE QUOTES),this should give you exact match.
If I search by -- CPVC 2 -- I get two results:
If I search by --CPVC -- I get 24 results:
If I search by -- 2 -- I get hundreds of results:
I need a way to explain the best way of doing this with consent results or change the way the data card works. Any other ideas?
If you are search on a variable field with spaces then it takes the whole string as an exact match. If you want to search on a variable with AND / OR then use the "Advanced" Tab and enter the required variable matches using that tab.
