Truncation in Annie
You can use asterisks (*) in Annie's Keyword searching mode to substitute for one or more characters, thus
allowing you to expand a search.
- A single asterisk will substitute for 1 to 5 characters. Example: environment* will find
environment, environmental, environmentally, environmentalist, etc.
- Two asterisks will substitute for 6 or more characters. Example: consti** will find
constitution, constitutional, etc., but will also find constipation and constituent --
be very cautious when using the double asterisk.
