'Begins with' search doesn't return suspected results

'Begins with' search doesn't return suspected results

My DataAssist search is set up for 'includes'. A search for 'red grease' returns all products with 'red grease', 'reduced grease', 'engineered grease', etc.

I switched to 'begins with' but the search for 'red grease' returns 'no records found', as does searches for 'red' and 'grease'. The only way I can get a result for 'grease' is by entering 'g'.

Does the 'begins with' only work with a one word, or one letter, search? Do I have to go back to OR rather than AND in order for two words to work?

I need a search for 'red grease' to return 'red grease' or 'reduced grease' but not 'engineered grease'.

It will take some custom coding to get what you want. You want to search for both words when separated by a space, but then search for the beginning of each word, not includes. That isn't an option in the current code base. I could add that in a premier support ticket for you.
