windows server 2012
i have a folder that has a ton of dll's and i need to identify the ones that have  a '001 at the end of the file name before the dll extension

example file
planning000.dll

this file will result in the search results if i search for "lan" or "plan"    it will not result in the search if i provided '000'
what gives... this is a search within one folder of windows 2012.

Did you try with wildcards    *000.dll
and/or enclose in double quotes    "*000.dll"
?
