I am using the construct:
"SEARCH wa_longtext FOR p_phrase."
to search the wa for the argument '050' in the parm p_phrase.
The search returns sy-subrc = 0 on a string with the substring '05/01', which does contain '050' if you ignore the dash.
Am I correct in assuming that the standard "SEARCH" construct ignores non-alphanum characters, thereby yielding the above result.
If so, is there an alternative "search' function module that I can use to avoid this problem?
