Hello to all

I just found out, that the count-command does not work properly.

In order to locate fields with more than one word/number in it, we
had that old the command called {count}

{count} last_name[ > 1

But: In asksam 5.1 this does'nt work (don't know if AS 4xx behaved
differently)

When doing a search like this:
{count} name[ = 2

I only get an error message
BUT:
{count} name[ =2

that is, with the "2" immediately following the =-sign (without a
space),
askSam outputs the content of that field (from ANY document no matter
how many words it contains).

But in the same database there is a field called "pos" (position)
where the command works correctly:
the only document with that field containing TWO numbers (1 2) is
output - which is correct:

{count} pos[ = 2

(WITH a space between!)

Any idea?

Julian
