Using wildcards (Like -operator)

When a value supports wildcards (Like -operator) you can use the following special characters. All of the example below match the string ‘example 1’.

*Zero or more characters*amp*1
?Any single charactere?ample 1
#Any single digit (0–9)example #
[charlist]Any single character in charliste[xyz]ample 1
[!charlist]Any single character not in charliste[!abc]ample 1

To match the special characters left bracket ([), question mark (?), number sign (#), and asterisk (*), enclose them in brackets. The right bracket (]) cannot be used within a group to match itself, but it can be used outside a group as an individual character.
