In our new SharePoint 2013 environment, whenever we are looking at a Document Library, we see the new "Find a File" text field. Sometimes we can put in partial data (like for the Project Name field, which is a Single line of text) using a * as a wildcard and results are returned properly. Other times, like for our custom AFE Number field, we get 0 results. We still try using the * as a wild card (both before and after the text we see, and using various combinations of quotations). I can easily see the results in the list, but SharePoint "Find a File" Search does not find it. Any ideas on why this is?
Update: I've been able to produce results if I include the first part of the word in the search, and end it with a *, as opposed to typing in a * followed by the last part of the search term.
