    "Starts with" search for alternate title returns no results

    • Article Type: General
    • Product: Primo ; Primo VE

    Problem Symptoms:
    -A "Starts with" "In the title" search for an item's alternate title returns zero results
    -A "Starts with" "In the title" search for an item's main title returns the expected item

    This is working as designed.

    "Starts with" searches use the value contained in the sort/title section of the PNX. This section supports only one title. In most circumstances, the sort/title is the same as the item's main title, so a search for an alternate title returns no results.

    As an alternative to the "Starts with" search for titles, use the Browse title search.
