Searching for elements starting with 'A'

I need to be able to return all of a document type begining with ‘A’. I have tried the following X-Query but nothing is returned:


the description element has a Standard index and records exist that should be returned. The response is :

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-1" ?>
<ino:response xmlns:ino=“” xmlns:xql=“”>
<ino:message ino:returnvalue=“0”>
ino:messagelineXQL Request processed, no object returned</ino:messageline>

If I use the following query, records are returned but the result is as expected for a text search:


I am using version

Can anyone advise please?



Try “between” and standard index
