IBM Web Interface for Content Management known limitation - You cannot use some special characters in the Find field on Microsoft Internet Explorer

Product documentation


Abstract

If you use IBM® Web Interface for Content Management (IBM WEBi) with Microsoft® Internet Explorer Version 6 or Version 7, you cannot enter an exclamation point (!), ampersand (&), left parenthesis ((), or double quotation mark (") in the Find field of the Navigation panel.

Content

When you try to type one of these special characters in the Find field of the Navigation panel in Internet Explorer, nothing is entered in the field.

If you cannot enter a character in the Find field, you can replace the special character with the percent sign (%) wildcard character, which can be substituted for one or more characters.

If you chose not to use the wildcard character instead of the special character, you should be aware of the following behaviors in the Find field:


  • If your item type or folder begins with a special character, for example !company, you can only enter "company" in the Find field.

    Your search will return items that contain the phrase "company", which includes the !company item.

  • If your item type or folder contains a special character, for example new!company, you can only enter "new" or "company" in the Find field.

    Your search will return items that contain the phrase "new" or "company", depending on the phrase you entered, and your search results include the new!company item.

    Important: If you enter "newcompany" in the Find field, your results will not include the new!company item.

  • If your item type or folder ends with a special character, for example company!, you can only enter "company" in the Find field.

    Your search will return items that contain the phrase "company", which includes the company! item.
