Hi Pilou,

> PS a? will select all names with 2 letters, with a a in first place no? ;)

Yup, that's correct - a? will match aa, ab, ac, az, etc... - any name with 2 letters that starts with a. But it will not match aaa for example.

On the other hand a * character will allow any number of variations in place of the *, so an a* would match all of aa, ab, ac, aaa, aaddfas, etc... - that one will match anything that starts with a regardless of how many other characters follow it.
