I am not sure if the comma works by design, or is just luck. I didn't 
even know it worked myself until I tried it the other day.

For better control of search, may I humbly suggest taking a look at our 
Vlastic Search module [1]? It uses a backend Elasticsearch(*) server 
that indexes everything, so you end up with very powerful search 
features across _all_ data in vtiger ;-)

* I am aware of the recent licensing issues with Elasticsearch. although 
the changes make no real difference to smaller enterprises, I will be 
looking at the possibility of supporting one of the forks in due course 
as well.
