Small problem finding strings beginning with "/"

    Hi,

    I am trying to find all the WORKATTR segments that have a WAACCNT field beginning with a slash (/)
    The problem is that when I specify such a filter (/*) an error always occur. I am sure that there must be a way to do this, I just cannot figure out how.
    Can you please shed some light into this?
    Thank you

    Hi joao

    Specifying /* results in a CARLa query like this 

           s c=user KEY=CRMBANY s=workattr waaccnt=/*

    where /* means start of a comment so the rest of the query isnt processed. This can be avoided by specifying '/*'g but unfortunately the user interface does not except that.

    as a circumvention you can use the results command after the query failed, then select COMMANDS and edit the query

           s c=user KEY=CRMBANY s=workattr waaccnt='/*'g

    and if you consider this a defect open a defect with support

    cheers
