What issue do you have?

As far as I know, the basic search will allow searching exactly for what I need. However, some wildcards are still in action such as % or *, and end up showing all notes. I assume that a percent sign (%) would work as an SQL wildcard and an asterisk(*) as a Full Text Search wildcard. In fact, I have no idea about the double-quote (") but it works similarly. Would it be possible to escape them for a basic search? I tried backslash (\) before them, but it didn't work.
