Filtering SharePoint Sites by first letter of name

Copper Contributor



I am trying to create a site index using the search results web part and the PnP Search verticals.


I am having a problem when trying to filter the sites. When I try to refine the search to pull in only the sites that start with “A” the search begins pulling in other sites where the second or third word starts with A too. Is there a way to have it only pull in the sites where only the first word starts with the letter “A”?


I am using the SharePoint search data source and I have set up the following managed property to help sort the sites:

RefinableString03 = ows_sitename


Any help would be most appreciated.
