Maximizer has plenty of features that our technical team regularly use that even I as the Marketing Manager have only just become aware of.

I’ve found them so helpful with my day-to-day use of Maximizer that I’m now using them whenever I can. Now I have decided to share these little nuggets of information with you in the hopes that you find them as useful as I have.

Some of our more technical users will know that Maximizer searches can use standard SQL wildcard characters to find records, but for the people who don’t (like me) here are a few examples of the wildcards that you can use:

One of the most common would be to find email addresses that look like email addresses.

Email Address = %@%.%

 

Other wildcards work too:

Character: % (percent)

Meaning: Represents zero or more characters

Example: bl% finds bl, black, blue, and blob

 

Character: _ (underscore)

Meaning: Represents a single character

Example: h_t finds hot, hat, and hit

 

Character: [ ] (square brackets)

Meaning: Represents any single character within the brackets

Example: h[oa]t finds hot and hat, but not hit

 

Character: ^ (caret or hat)

Meaning: Represents any character not in the brackets

Example: h[^oa]t finds hit, but not hot and hat

 

Character: – (dash or minus)

Meaning: Represents a range of characters

Example: c[a-b]t finds cat and cbt

NB: Maximizer always puts a % on the end of a search string
