Hello, I have searched far and wide and cannot seem to figure out how to define a range by means of excluding, rather than simply including books.

 

Specifically, I am working in the OT Peshitta (PESHOT-T) and would like to conduct searches only in the books of the Tanak and exclude the apocryphal books from my searches, i.e., Letter of Jeremiah, Baruch, Judith, Susanna, Bel, 4Ezra, Wisdom, Sirach, and 1-4Maccabees.

 

Other than manually entering all 39 (24) books of the Hebrew OT in a defined range, is there any way in which I can define a range that is something along the lines of "Gen-Mal" minus the 12 books of the apocrypha?

I think you can just define a range including all the books you would like to exclude. Then in your search do something like :

 

   <search term> <NOT> [RANGE excluded_books]

This solution will work (although untested), but I would like to define a range so as to use it often. At this point I'm just going to manually enter all of the books.

Oh ok. I had thought it was already possible to use a defined range in [RANGE ?] command - I had requested this some time ago, and I guess never really proved that it had or had not been done - oops, sorry. In any case, it won't work so without a not option on the search range option, or the ability to use a defined range in a RANGE command I don't see another alternative to what you are doing.

 

For what it's worth here is my feature request : https://www.accordan...-range-command/

 

Thx

Thanks again for this Daniel. I started another topic (here) that perhaps you can help me with the answer to. I am attempting to 'define a range' that includes the 39 books of the Tanak, but keep getting an error message that I'm not using the correct syntax in defining the range. Would you happen to know how I can do this?

It is more work but using ranges is generally a lot better, especially if you're going to use them repeatedly or use the Accordance analysis features.

 

As an example compare the 'Hits Graph' in these two searches:

 

covenant <AND>  [RANGE Isaiah] 
 
vs.
 
Searching for covenant and using a search range set to just Isaiah.
 
 
There are good reasons and times to use the [RANGE] command. But using the range search scope has some advantages too.

Looks like Jeremy beat me to it. That said the issue you hit looks like it would benefit from an enhancement in the error handling highlight the location of the error.

 

The main difference between [RANGE] and the search option range, is that the first is applied to the display of the results and the second is applied to the search that is run. That place this has made the most difference in my searches is in COUNT queries where the results will differ leading you one, for example to include or exclude words from vocab flashcards when based on occurrences.

 

This is explained in a note the RANGE standalone command help.

 

Thx
