Find folders with exact name only


Recommended Posts

I would like to search for folders by their exact name, and exclude other folders starting with or otherwise containing the search phrase.

 

Say I have folders:

Object

Object 1

Object 12

 

And I have files:

Object

Object 1

Object 12

 

I want to search for "Object" and return all folder(s) with the exact name "Object", regardless of their paths/parent folders. I don't want any files returned and I don't want folders "Object 1" "Object 12".

 

I can currently get all folders containing "Object" using a File Filter limited to File Type public.folder with Words and Split unchecked in the Field tab. Or I can check those boxes and the result will be limited to folders starting with "Object" but will also pull in "Object 1" "Object 12" etc.

 

I thought there would be an obvious way to limit the results in the Value of the Field tab, but I'm not finding a way to make that work.

 

Thanks
