The asterisk should be eliminated. Go to the advanced focus/filter, Click to define the field filter, then click on the greater than sign (>). Where it says "matches" use the drop down feature and select instead "contains" and enter your abbreviated "Sprot" in the text field and hit enter. That should get you what you're looking for.
