I'm just enquiring how the Library search engine functions. It all seems a bit random.

For example, its finds:
Spurgeon's but notTreasury of David

Robertson's but not Grammar of NT Greek
Word Pictures but not Robertson's
Institutes but not Calvin's

St. Athanasius but notOn the Incarnation
Pensées but not Pascal


I'm sure there are others, but the list should suffice; sometimes the criteria is the author, sometimes the title or sometimes part of the title.

I'm just worried that I may do a quick search and end up thinking I don't have a particular volume when its actually listed under something else.

Would it not be better to list every entry under author and all title words?

I'm not really having the same problem, although it does not find names if you have the apostrophe included, but that is OK because it finds what you want before you get to that point. Are you on Accordance 10 or 9?

Hi Paul,
I wouldn't mind betting you have it set to search by author.

My library is set to search any and it finds Treasury of David by typing Treasury just fine.

See if that's the issue...

Than you Ken, I didn't even realise there was a drop down box and a list of filters.

Problem solved - well done.
