If I'm searching for a PDF that has the following name "Alpha Bravo Charlie", if I search for "Alpha Charlie" the document will not be found!

For a Google product, this app has the worst search feature I've ever seen.

Please fix this ASAP!

YES! Please fix this, HUGE PROBLEM!

Also if a name contains a separator "_" or "-" the search will not yield results with out the particular pre-cursur and the separator.  Example 2009 06 21_BM reburse_chk.  Searching BM reburse will not yield results.

I agree; google bad searches...no...

Please fix!!

This search bug is bigger than just when searching for PDFs. Even when searching for the combination of two words I know are in the title of a spreadsheet or presentation the search fails. Apparently only the list of documents can be searched for non adjacent words in the title.

I agree with adame:  "For a Google product, this app has the worst search feature I've ever seen."

The advanced search has a text box for "named".  For "regular" google docs, the search appears to work correctly, finding documents, however for "any" files like PDFs or JPEGs, the search cannot find the files even if the full name is entered into the "name" text box in advanced search.

<<I agree with adame:  "For a Google product, this app has the worst search feature I've ever seen."  >> I'll third that.

The one thing everyone knows about Google? It has great search algorithms. but not at home apparently; bizarre!

I'm searching for a word within a document that is repeated numerous times but receive the "No matches found" message. Has this bug really been fixed? Or am I missing something?
Re: Bug: search does not work properly Gill 3/7/10 8:41 AM
Did you try the word in quotes?

as of today... march 14... the bug still persists... it is amazing that google can search words and finds matches within huge and many pdf files in seconds! but is also bizzare that it can not search only the names/titles of these pdfs... which is uncomparably easier... but I am sure google will fix this problem as soon as someone realizes it...
