Search Combination Searching - Combining
Combines multiple search criteria.

You may combine many search criteria into a single search command, effectively searching through many different fields at once, while sorting and even summarizing the results. To create a complex search, simply put all the search criteria into a single URL or HTML form, or even an embedded [Search] context.

Examples:


Find all product Descriptions containing either of the words "Television" or "Stereo" or both and sort the found items containing both words (best match) to the top of the list.

Results.tpl?command=search&woDescriptiondata=Television,Stereo&db=Products.db

Find all product Descriptions containing either of the words "Television" or "Stereo" or both and sort the found items by Price in descending order.

Results.tpl?command=search&woDescriptiondata=Television,Stereo&Pricesort=1&Pricesdir=de&Pricetype=num&db=Products.db


Find all product Descriptions containing both of the words "Television" and "Stereo."

Results.tpl?command=search&waDescriptiondata=Television,Stereo&db=Products.db


Find all product Descriptions containing neither the word "Television" nor "Stereo."

Results.tpl?command=search&wnDescriptiondata=Television,Stereo&db=Products.db


Find all blank product Titles (contain no text whatsoever, not even a space).

Results.tpl?command=search&eqTitledata=[blank]&db=Products.db


Find all records whose product Description contains at least one of "Television" or "Stereo" and also whose product Title contains at least one of "Car" or "Boat."

Results.tpl?command=search&woDescriptiondatarq=Television,Stereo&woTitledatarq=&Car,Boat&db=Products.db
