1. Type of Search
By default, the search will be for ANY words that are included in the search box. i.e. When two or more words are entered, the results will show all issues that contain any of these words.
If you enter the string: error code the results would include all issues that contain any of these words: error, code, subcode, etc.
As long as it contains one of these strings in its entirety. It will not look for the exact phrase "error code".
Click to the left of the Exact Phrase text to search for an exact phrase. (All words must be contained together, as they appear in the search box, in order to be shown in your results.)
2. The search is not case sensitive.
If you enter ERROR, the word error or Error will also be found, whether upper or lower case.
3. Using a wildcard (%):
In the field 'Search:', you may use the symbol % as a wildcard. Use it in place of a character or characters that are unknown or that may differ.
Use at Beginning: entering %books will result in finding any character strings that end in 'books', such as quickbooks or cashbooks.
Use in Middle: Entering ch%rt will find any character strings that have 'ch' at the beginning, and 'rt' at the end, but some other character or string of characters in between. Such as chert, charter, chapter, check convert.
If your results are too large, remove a word or two; or add a few more characters to the word(s). Try to search for an unusual word that you recall from the issue. Example: internal rather than in.
