Can someone please explain why text search is not working as I expect it to and if there is a fix for this?

I can run text searches for words just fine and get results as expected.  However, there are times when I want to search for a file name that is in the text of a response such as "_dsp_filename.cfm".  A search on ".cfm" works, but that is too broad of a search.  I would like to do a search on part of the filename so I can see all the different related files.  I have tried to search on "_dsp", "_dsp_", "file" or "filename" and none of these examples return any results.  (I do not actually search using quotes but it is easier here for explanation purposes.)  I can search on the full filename,  "_dsp_filename" (everything before the extension) and get results but as I said before this limits my results to much for what I need to do.  Is there something with the underscore that causes problems with the search code?

thanks,
Aaron

It's working as designed so I'm moving this to modifications.

Meanwhile, this mod will not solve your problem but it contains some good info about searching.
