Fuzzy Search

Applies to: Ephesoft Transact 4.5.0.0 and above

Fuzzy Search is a checkbox available in the Fuzzy Search Results window on the Validation screen. By default, Fuzzy Search is enabled.

  • If the Fuzzy Search switch is used to look for multi-word records, all results relevant to the search argument will be fetched, irrespective of the Starts With, Ends With, Contains, Exact Match filters.
  • If the Fuzzy Search switch is unselected, the results will be filtered according to the option used to perform the search (Starts With, Ends With, Contains, Exact Match).

Suppose, the word “Bill” is used as a search argument, and Exact Match as a search filter. When the Fuzzy Search option is not selected, the system will look for entries containing only “Bill”, and will return no results (as there are no entries containing only “Bill” in the database).

If the Fuzzy Search is selected, however, all results containing the word “Bill” are fetched:

Below are some sample cases, where search results are compared with Fuzzy Search option enabled and disabled for Starts With/Ends With/Contains search filters.

Search Filter: Starts With
Fuzzy Search: ON Fuzzy Search: OFF

 

Search Filter: Ends With
Fuzzy Search: ON Fuzzy Search: OFF

 

Search Filter: Contains
