Choose Help | Search to display the QAD Search panel. You can do simple searches for single terms such as Sales and phrases such as Sales Orders. You can also create more complex terms using operators such as Sales AND Region. You can use any of the following operators (entered in upper case):
AND, +, OR, NOT, -
If you are unsure of the exact term you are searching for, use wild cards:
• Use a question mark (?) to replace a single character; for example, S?les
• Use an asterisk (*) to replace multiple characters; for example S**es
• Use the tilde symbol (~) to perform fuzzy searches, which return results similar to the term you entered. You can specify the similarity to the searched term using a numerical option between 0 and 1 for example, sales~0.8. The closer the value to 1, the greater the similarity. The default value is 0.5.
• Use numerals to specify words within a specified distance from each other. For example, if you enter Sales Region~10, the panel displays all instances of Sales and Region that appear within 10 words of each other in a document.
