Free Text Searching
The free text search allows you to search within the actual text of the document or webpage, much like a Google search on the web. Here are some ways you can modify your search:
Selects documents that contain all of the search terms you specify.
Selects documents that show evidence of at least one of the search terms you specify.
Question: specifies any single alphanumeric character. Can be used when searching for accented words or when the exact spelling of a word varies geographically. Example: mobil?e will match mobilise and mobilize.
Asterisk: specifies zero or more alphanumeric characters. Avoid using the asterisk as the first character in a search string! Example: behavio*r will match behavior and behaviour.
Expands the search to include the word that you enter plus words that are similar to the query term. This command performs "approximate pattern matching" to identify similar words. This is also useful when searching for accented words or s. Example:
Selects only those documents in which the search terms appear within 1,000 words of each other.
Selects documents that include all of the words you specify within the same paragraph. To search for three or more words or phrases, you must use the
operator between each word or phrase.
Selects documents that include all of the words you specify within the same sentence.
