Hi
I like to search items without a specific word, example without word "Poliisi".
If my query is "NOT Poliisi", I will got any items (I know that there is items with this word).

How to use operator NOT in search agent?

A couple of things to check:
* make sure that Advanced syntax is turned on.
* are you using only ASCII characters e.g. is "Poliisi" actually spelled with an "unusual" character?

Advanced syntax is turned on and there is no any "unusual" characters.

Same happens example with http://www.bbc.co.uk/go/rss/int/news/-/ ... a_pacific/
- there is 13 results with search "China" (Advanced syntax is off) and
- there is 0 results with search "NOT China" (Advanced syntax is on)

I can send some hardcopies of screens and settings by email, if needed.

Hmmm, I've had a quick play with this and you're right, it seems to be not working :-(

Leave it with me and I'll look into it.
