In keywords search, a symbol may sometimes be inserted in the middle of a search term to retrieve words containing any character in the designated position. The wildcard symbol may vary from one type of search software to the next.

See also: truncation and Boolean searching.

Example: In some databases, the keywords search wom#n (or wom?n) will retrieve records containing both woman and women.
