Explicit When Applying "ESC"

I am trying to find files/folders that have ESC (only). When I key in my query string, =ESC, no results are returned. If I apply "ESC" or just plain ESC, I get all the wrong results, such as . . . description, presciption, etc. Do I need to do something else in order to get ESC applied explicitly?

Thank you for your help! :-)

If ESC will always have a space before or after, you can do your query like this (note the space before and after inside the quotes):

Code



If ESC might be at the end or start of a line, you can switch the Query type to RegEx, and use this:

Code



Hope that helps!

Hi, Keith!

Thank you so much for you assistance and so far and I'm not sure why, the space trick isn't working. I may be wrong, but that really should work and I'm wondering if I'm seeing a bug. However, the regex option did work, but unfortunately, ESC will mostly be w/in sentences. Did the space trick work for you?

Thank you for your time and help . . . it is very appreciated! :-)

The space trick did work for me. Did you try it while the Query mode was set to Text Query or RegEx? It will only work for Text Query.

Yes, I confirmed the text query was applied. I will continue to work with that string, as I agree, it definitely should work. Maybe I will give the ol' computer a reboot and see if that will set it straight!

Thank you, again, for your assistance! It helped A LOT!! :-)
