Windows Search 4 – Wildcard in file content

Hi,

firstly, apologies if this post lands in the wrong groups.

Have Windows Search 4 in use under XP pro. Works rather nicely – but –
although I can use wildcards such as "*" for file names – use of wildcards
for words contained in file content does not work for the word begining.

So, in a content search, bana* will find banana
but
*nana will NOT find banana.

Am unsure if this is by design or if I am goofing somewhere.
Could anyone please advise?
