Detailed information about this topic

Specifying Scoped Boundaries

You can subdivide extended properties by specifying scoped boundaries. You are not obliged to enter scoped boundaries. If you do enter a lower boundary you are not required to enter an upper one. However, if you specify an upper boundary, you have to enter a lower one.

Take note of the following when defining scoped boundaries:

  • Basically, any string is permitted as a lower or upper scoped boundary.
  • You can use * as a wildcard for any number of characters (even null).
  • Wild cards can only be added to the end of a string, for example, AB*. Strings such as *AB or A*B are not allowed, for example.
  • If you enter a lower boundary without a wildcard, you cannot use a wildcard in the upper boundary.

The following restrictions apply for the length of the string:

  • If you enter a lower and upper boundary without a wildcard, the strings have to be the same length, for example, lower boundary 123/upper boundary 456. A lower boundary of 123 and an upper of 45, for example, is not permitted or a lower boundary 123/upper boundary 4567 is also not allowed.
  • If you use a wildcard in the lower boundary but none in the upper boundary, then the length of the upper boundary string needs to be the same as or bigger than the string in the lower boundary.
  • If you use a wildcard in the lower and upper boundary, they have to be the same length, for example, lower boundary 123*/upper boundary 456*. A lower boundary of 123* and an upper of 45*, for example, is not permitted or a lower boundary 123*/upper boundary 4567* is also not allowed.

Additional Tasks for Managing Extended Properties
