SharePoint 2010 Search Question
Posted on 2014-02-18
I need to do a search for an exact phrase in parenthesis in SharePoint 2010. I have a word that is commonly used. I am looking for instances of the word only in parenthesis, however, as the other uses aren't relevant.
For example, I need to search for, and find results for: "(september)"
If I type that in the search, SharePoint returns each instance of September, such as September 5th, 2013. I was only looking for the date in parenthesis, as it has a separate meaning.
Is there any way I can do an escape character or set up search using different metadata properties such that I could search for parenthesis? I realize it is a special character, but I have a very specific need to find just the instances with parenthesis.
Note, I am not using FAST search.
