There are certain rules that make successful searching possible. The following table uses examples to describe these rules.

Table 1: Rules with examples for searching
Example Description

John Doe

Finds John Doe but not John Donut.

Search results must contain all of the separate terms in the query. A logical AND is used.

John OR Doe

Finds Jane Doe and John Donut.

Placing OR between the search terms, acts as a logical OR operator. The results of this search contain at least one of the two search terms.

John NOT Doe

Finds John but not John Doe.

The results of this search do not contain the term that comes after NOT.

J*

Finds John and Joanna.

The * functions as a wildcard for any number of characters to complete the term.

Do?

Finds Doe but not Donut.

The ? functions as a wildcard for a single character to complete the term.

"John Doe"

Provides results in which the search terms John and Doe follow one another.

Results of this search contain the string in quotes as phrase.

John Doe~

Finds Jon Does but also other similar results. A tilde ~ after the search term indicates that the search should also find similar results. That means that incorrectly spelled terms can be found as well.

You can specify the level of similarity by adding a number between 0 and 1 (with decimal point) after the tilde ~. The higher the number, the more similar the results.
