Tricky query for TREX


I would like to query TREX for documents that has displaynames starting with a specific letter.

If I have three documents named Apple, Ananas and Different Apples I would like to find the two first when searching for documents having a displayname starting with A.

I have tried a couple of different techniques without any success.

Examples of such queries are:

displayname=a* AND NOT displayname=?a*

displayname=a* AND NOT displayname=a

The thing is I always ends up with all three or none of the documents.

I am writing my own component so I am pretty free when it comes to what I send to TREX.

Is anyone having some nice ideas on this problem?

    Hi Prierre,

    if you are on EP6 SP2 Patch 5 or NW04 SPS4 or higher, try the following:

    IQueryEntry queryEntry = this.fedSearch.getNewQueryEntry();






    IQueryEntryList queryEntries = ...


    This should return all documents with displayname starts with a.

    Best regards,
