On the advanced search page in SharePoint 2010 page I type in the last name of an individual short the last character i.e. smit instead of smith.
After hitting search it doesn't return any results.
If I enter the full name smith it returns back multiple results.
It appears that the default search operator is equals instead of contains in the field 'all of these words' field. This seems to be what is occurring here. Can someone confirm this finding?
Can this default behavior be modified? (I would rather it use contains to make it easier for individuals to type in letters that may match individuals names)
