Use spaces and wild cards in the query value to be more specific with your search. For example, if you are querying on Constituent Name begins with 'The' and you do not want to include individual names such as Theodore, filter on: Constituent Name begins with The *

Note: The value is The[space]*

By placing a space between "The" and the asterisk (*), The Raiser's Edge is looking for names that begin with The[space], e.g. organization names beginning with the word, 'The'.
