I've been hobbling together some of the syntax for the search entry box to do some power searches. The help file has moved me in the right direction but I still feel I'm missing something. I am getting more comfortable with the Search drop down menu but still think there is more I could do.

I've been thinking of putting together a cribsheet of the syntax of search commands but before I start I was wondering if anyone has one they'd like to share or has something started?

I love accordance and would like to get the most out of it I can.

Have you looked in Help/Advanced Features/Search Criteria? and at the summary in Help/Reference/Menus/Search?

That is close, Helen. Thanks for point it out. It was where I began to get some idea of how to use the search syntax.

But I'm thinking of a bit more. For example, I started using the drop down menu to define ranges until I came across the [Range] command in the help menu. Then it took me a while to figure out that it had to be "[Range book-book] <and> word".

I guess I'll have to start hobbling one together with examples! :)

The User's Guide has details and examples in the chapter on Search commands.
