(Archived) search text within words

Recommended Posts

Sorry if this is posted twice...the 1st didn't appear to work.

How can I search text within a word please?

eg machine_maintenance_tc101 I want to be able to retrieve this from maintenance or tc101.

So far I have only found it to be available from searching m+a+c+h+ etc/

I have thousands of these so I can't add tags to search on.

You can only search for words, or for the beginning part of a word. The underscore character is the only non-alphanumeric character that is considered to be part of a "word".

This means you can search for the beginning of a word like this:


But not for an arbitrary set of characters in the middle of a "word".
