Is there any such restrictions in SharePoint 2013 online for search?

I am trying to Search documents tagged with underscore "_" metadata , for example :- "A_ABC" (GenType).

Query I input in my searchbox ,

GenType = "A_ABC" , but I am not getting any results from my document library.

But for another metadata ABC(without any underscore),

GenType = "ABC" , I see the relevant documents in the search results.

Aren't we allowed to enter "_" in the search queries?

  • I suspect that the underscore is being used as a word breaker and will not work in your query. – Matthew McDermott Aug 29 '16 at 16:09
  • @MatthewMcDermott Okay then how should i use it in my query to make it searchable? – mohd tahir Aug 30 '16 at 5:36
  • If quotes don't work, I have no idea. – Matthew McDermott Aug 30 '16 at 22:21
