Hello all,

I often have to sear for strings with a + or ++ character in the line.
How do I have to search for such character string like:

"BGM++227+1234567890+9+NA"

The quote is only to show you, that this is a complete line.

Thanks all.

Since there are no spaces in the text you should be able to search for that term exactly as shown (assuming you have Boolean expression specified).

Containing Text: BGM++227+1234567890+9+NA

If you had spaces then you would need quotes:

Containing Text: "BGM ++ 227+1234567890+9+NA"

If you want to ensure that your text has no 'special' characters and will be treated literally use the Plain text expression type:
