How to query clusters of number such as a block of 3 or 4 numbers? RRS feed

  • Question

  • My customer wants to use FAST for SharePoint to search blocks of 3 or 4 numbers such as in phone numbers. Is this possible without coding? How can this query be constructed?

  • Do you mean a query for the entire block, or just a section of the block ?
    For example 111-222-3333 as opposed to searching 3333 for example.
    This will depend on how the phone # is indexed and you can check the fixml to confirm. Usually special characters gets stripped off during document processing and query processing as well. By default the phone number above will be indexed as 111 222 3333
