Hi,

Is it possible to give two or more condition over the Search Query string.

Thank you.

Yes its possible.
You need to use + in between keywords

Suppose I have set my Scope to 'People' and I want find all the peoples on the Site With 'First Name' Starting with "A" and 'Last Name' Starting with "A" then How would I build the Search Query.

Thank you.

The MOSS/WSS user interface does not support wildcard search out of the box.

Read the article below for building your own Wildcard search webpart
