I have face some problem in catalog search by SKU.

My sku is PW 512/24. It will give me multiple result for this SKU. Please help me How can I search product with SKU including space?

Thank you in adavance!

  • Could you explain what you exactly mean with "It will give me multiple result for this SKU" or give an example? You should avoid having SKU's with space inbetween, better use hyphens or underscore. When I change some SKU's (example: one to PW 123 and one to PW 124"), I get the right one product when I search for one of them. Sep 11, 2013 at 8:41

Try changing your search type to "Combined".

You will fine this in System > Configuration > Catalog > Catalog Search

See Search Type: Like, Full Text or Combined?
