Using Wildcards


Concept


Steps:

  1. PeopleSoft applications support three wildcard features when searching for data in character fields. These wildcards can be helpful in finding the exact information you want to process.

     

    The table below displays the supported standard wildcard features.

    Step 1
  2. For example, suppose you are looking for a specific person but can't remember his ID. You know that the ID begins with "K" and contains the numbers 99. You can use the % wildcard to locate the person.

     

    Enter the desired information into the ID field. Enter

     a valid value
     e.g.
     "K%99"
    .

    Step 2
  3. Click the Search button.

    Step 3
  4. There are two people that match this criterion.

    Step 4

You have successfully searched for a record using a wildcard.
