I am working on an enterprise wiki site collection inside our sharepoint on-premises 2013. and i want to create a list view which shows all the wiki pages which contain the following "T:\" inside their "Page Content". So i created a new list view, and i define the following filter:- enter image description here

but the list view will not show any items, although we have around 200 pages which contain text as follow:-



so can anyone advice on this please?

Also if i define the following filter, i will not get anything:- enter image description here

now if i just remove the "T:" i will get results!! enter image description here

but in my case i only want to get pages which contain this text "T:\" ..


After view the wiki page source, I notice the ":" is replaced as : in the page source, you can type the filter as Page Content contains "T:\" to achieve your requirement.

    ok it worked for me.. but for curiosity how did you know that the : will be replaced as : .. also do you have a list of such characters? – SharePoint TestDev Apr 10 '19 at 11:36

    I just open the page and right click->view page source, find "\customers\" text, and notice the ":" display as ""&# 5 8;", I didn't find any official documentation that states the list of characters. – Hellofiona_MSFT Apr 12 '19 at 7:32
