LDAP Addressbook search - match first letter only

According to the SPA500 Admin Guide, a LDAP query will search on every letter:

"This searches for the text string anywhere in the beginning, middle, or at the end of a name."

Would it be possible to search only on the first letter of a name?

Eric, I don't know if you ever solved this request.

In the search syntax you will see the "$VALUE" criteria bounded by two "*". These serve as wildcard matches. If you simply delete the first "*" before $VALUE your match will start at the beginning. Likewise if you remove the second "*" instead the search will try to match at the end. If you remove both it will look for an exact match.
