SOLVED use the normal wild card % and it works.
So this gets complicated…
Simply I’m looking for a like operator in my request.
So if i queried for Company in Contact as “ins” where there is a record Company named “insurance co” = no result.
However and i’m currently using this actively so it works. So I query a specific value for GroupName from ContactGroup ( which presumably has ALL applied tag names within that field because again that’s how it’s actively working ) it will work.
So I just assumed that queryData equated to a like structure so basically everything was ‘%value%’ again because that’s how ContactGroup queries ultimately behave.
Logically both of these can not function differently.
Where i’m going with this is i’m asking for the first few characters of company name, to then query the Contact Company field. So basically searching for a company before they add the duplicate…
