Error description

  • Customer installed the wild card enhancement but the end users
    are unable to use the feature to search for special characters %
    and _.?In DB2, there is an escape sequence to allow searching
    for special character % and _ using ESCAPE.??eg,??Retrieve all
    strings that begin with the character sequence '%_\' in column A
    of table T. ??  SELECT A FROM T?    WHERE T.A LIKE '\%\_\\%'
    ESCAPE '\'??However, the cognos wild card feature does not allow
    keying in of "ESCAPE" so users can't search for special
    characters.
