Anyone know how to disable or ignore the Minus (-) in search?


We link to hundreds of document files (stored on SharePoint) in our customer portal. We recently discovered that because of our file naming convention, if a user searches for the exact file name, the associated answer the document lives in is not included in search results. This is because our naming convention incorporates a dash/minus/- in the file name. We use the dash to separate the name of the procedure and the associated products that the procedure applies to. We also hyperlink the exact name of the file so that it matches the file name and title of the document.

Howdy, Stranger!
