Specific Word Search

Post by intranetsnob » 16 Feb 2020, 16:20

Hi there,

Is there a way to do a specific word search.

For example, a root folder has numerous files however, I want to pick out all the files with a certain phrase or number.

Thank you.

The select command "Select files by name" enables you to do that.

Thank you for getting back.

Can you type a command example of how you would search 188 in a folder?

As slightly confused with the special character required for using 'select files by name'

Using the search pattern *188* with the select command "Select files by name" will select all files at the search result that contain the number 188 in the file name. See "Wildcards for Text": http://www.alldup.info/alldup_help/placeholder.php
