Search does not find doc numbers in title

Many of the documents in my wiki have document numbers, such as SBT-00065. If I search for SBT-, I get a nice long list of items in the results. As soon as I add the first digit, SBT-0, I get 'no results found.'

Is anyone familiar with this?

Thanks

Have you checked http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Confluence+Search+Syntax ?

It says:

Excluded Term search

Similar to the NOT search, to search for content that contains "chalk" and "butter" but NOT "cheese"

chalk butter -cheese
It is just a guess, but could it be that your "-" is interpretated as a minus thus excluding all finds that contain a "0"?
