The navigation buttons can also be used to highlight content full text search and sub- search results. See “Content Full Text Search” and Text Sub-Search” for more information about these searches.

Find does not reduce the search results, it locates the entered word or phrase within the current list of search results. The text colour is changed to the font colour specified for Find Text Search Colour in the Style Sheet associated with the Data Definition used to index and store the search result. (See “On Screen Presentation – General Details” for information about associating a Style Sheet to a Data Definition.) When the Data Definition which was used to Index and Store the search result does not have an associated Style Sheet, the default colour, orange, is used for Find Text Search Colour.

Find can locate words in the following search result types:

  • TEXT documents.
  • PDF documents.
  • Word documents stored with a Data Definition with the Storage Format set to Pageable MS Word (see “General Properties – Storage Formatsfor more information).
  • Outlook messages.
  • Word document attachments in Outlook messages when the Outlook message was stored with a Data Definition with the Storage Format set to Pageable MS Word.

Results will also be found in nested Outlook messages. That is, Outlook messages saved and added as attachments to other Outlook messages. Searching nested Outlook messages will take more time that searching other search results. Although there is no imposed limit to the number of nested emails that can be searched, we have verified that results are found when five emails are nested inside an Outlook message. 

image

  • TEXT document attachments in Outlook messages.
  • PDF document attachments in Outlook messages.

Find does not locate words in the following search result types:

  • Word documents which were stored with a Data Definition without a Storage Format set.
  • RTF documents.
  • PowerPoint documents.
  • Excel Workbooks.
  • Scanned Documents.

Enter the text you want to search for in the text box. Set the scope of the Find search and then use the navigation button to move to a new result. The word or phrase is located in the current list of search results.

The text in the Find text box is searched for literally. That is, wildcard characters are not supported and all characters (including * and %) are treated as text. Similarly, [AND], [OR] and [NEAR] are searched for literally.

Changing the Scope

Select whether you want to look in the list of search results for the entered text on the currently selected page, in the currently selected document, in all the documents or in the current attachment.

Current page – the page which is currently selected in the search results.

Current document – the document which is currently selected in the search results. This option is only displayed when a document-level search was performed and whole documents are returned in the results.

Current result – the result which is currently selected in the search results.
