I'm trying to find if there are records in our system where the subfield delimiter has "\" instead of "|". When I put in "\" the system changes it to ":". I'm perflexed. Any suggestions? Thanks.

Hi! I think you will need to ask iii about this! I tried it both with a regular search and a json search and got the same result as you did! The only documentation I could find relates to how the \ is treated with advanced searching (it becomes a space)... Let us know what you find out! Have a SUPER weekend!

I tried that and it ignored the \. Maybe use a regular expression: field matches \\a or field matches \\b or field matches \\c should do it, though I haven't tested this.
Hi, Harriet,
I would try searching

field has \a
or field has \b
or field has \c

and so on rather than searching for the backslash without the subfield letter.

A regular expression should work for this. I don't believe the system likes to search for the metacharacters. If you put it inside brackets you should be able to search for the literal character. Ex: Bibliographic Marc tag 500 matches [\]c . This seems to work for me.
