Symptoms


When exectuing query:

SELECT col1, col2
FROM mytable
where CONTAINS(text, 'L.R%') > 0

Receiving error:

ORA-29902: error in executing ODCIIndexStart() routine
ORA-20000: Oracle Text error:
DRG-51030: wildcard query expansion resulted in too many terms

The problem is in the CONTAINS(text, 'L.R%')

If using 'L.RA%' or 'LR' then it works correctly.
