Enable Fuzzy Search for a Field in Enterprise Search

Hi All,

I have enabled Fuzzy search for Enterprise Search but fuzzy search is not working for the fields Manufacturer (MARA-MFRNR) and Manufacturer Part No. (MARA-MFRPN).

Please let me know how can I enable fuzzy search on these two fields ?

Thanks,

    Hi Swati,

    Did you try putting a wildcard or use the "contains" keyword?

      Hi Luqman,

      Thanks for your response.

      Wildcard(*) and using search operators (like 'contains') does not comes under Fuzzy Search. They work even without enabling Fuzzy.

      For example, If I have a material record with Manufacturer value "MANU1".

      If I use wildcard as "MAN*" then it will search that record.

      If I use contains as "MAN" then it will search that record.

      But, will it be able to search the same record if I search with "MANU-1" or "MANU 1" or "MAUN1" ?

      I am expecting this kind of search if Fuzzy Search option works.

    Hi Swati,

    From the screen shot above your system is configured to search using Enterprise search. To Setup or to check if is it setup. Please check the tcode ESH_COCKPIT. Or you need to need set this up. Please check this link.

    Again config depends on your System version.

    Thanking you

    SAP Notes 2380272 and 2420764 fixed the issue of Fuzzy Search on Search Material screen.

    But Fuzzy Search is not working in Duplicate Check. How to enable this ?
