In a database the '_' is the single-character wildcard match. 
The old specification specifies '_' and '?'. So the questions was, which is
the right one.

The DASL specification that Xythos implemented used a '?' as a
single-character wildcard match.  The -04 specification uses a '_' instead.
That could be a difficult switch to make since we have customers/clients
already using the older DASL syntax.

Is there a compelling reason to change the character used?

thanks
