Range searches allow you to match documents whose field(s) values are between the lower and upper value specified by the range search. Range searches can be inclusive or exclusive of the upper and lower bounds. Sorting is done alphabetically.
Using square brackets performs inclusive range searches:
This will find documents whose “Branch Name” field has values between “Bristol” and “Chester” inclusive.
Using curly brackets performs exclusive range searches:
This will find all documents whose “description” fields have values between “Bristol” and “Chester”, but not including “Bristol” and “Chester”.
