The wildcard query resulted in too many matches.
Wildcards are special symbols which are used in place of letters or numbers. They can be used to match distinct but similar words. An asterisk "*" replaces zero or more characters, and a question mark "?" replaces exactly one character. For example, a search for "fran*" will return matches on words like "Fran," "Franny," or "Frank." A search for "Johns?n" matches "Johnson" and "Johnsen," but not "Johnston."
Here are some suggestions on how you can better use wildcards to complete your search:
Use more characters before the wildcard. For example, use Able* instead of Abl*.
There must be at least 3 characters before any wildcard.
Specify both a first and last name or a partial first and last name.
Try using the single-character wildcard "?" rather than the multiple-character wildcard "*".
(e.g., using "Hans?n" matches both "Hansen" and "Hanson" rather than using "Hans*").
