How to get the best results!
You can enter several words as well as some signs which determine how the words should to be used.
- A leading plus (+)sign indicates that this word must be present in every row returned.
- A leading minus sign (-) indicates that this word must not be present in any row returned.
- These two operators are used to change a word's contribution to the relevance value that is assigned to a row. The < operator decreases the contribution and the > operator increases it.
- An asterisk (*) is the truncation operator. Unlike the other operators, it should be appended to the word, not prepended.
- The phrase, that is enclosed in double quotes ", matches only rows that contain this phrase literally, as it was typed.
And here are some examples:
- apple banana... find rows that contain at least one of these words.
- +apple +juice... both words.
- +apple macintosh... word "apple", but rank it higher if it also contain "macintosh".
- +apple -macintosh... word "apple" but not "macintosh".
- +apple +(>turnover <strudel)... "apple" and "turnover", or "apple" and "strudel" (in any order), but rank "apple pie" higher than "apple strudel".
- apple*... "apple", "apples", "applesauce", and "applet".
- "some words"... "some words of wisdom", but not "some noise words".
