How do I search for multiple keywords/values?


I'm new to SAP and I hope I'm posting this in the right forum.  I'm trying to do a simple part search in SAP using two keywords, but I'm missing a step.  For example, let's say I want to search for "air pumps" and I want to only get results that contain both words.

In the search box, I enter *air* *pump* , but only a few of the pumps show up.  Looking at the description closely, I see if there are 2 spaces between air and pump, SAP's search doesn't find them.  If there is only one space, the part does show up in the search results.

Why does the number of spaces between words affect the search result?  If I'm using wild cards, shouldn't the system find all the results that contain the strings between the asterisks?  Is there a prefix/symbol I can use to tell SAP to ignore the number of spaces between words in a field?

Thank you,
