AND and OR

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page

CRPA global search queries use the logical operators AND and OR.

Separations (spaces) between words operate like logical OR. Enter one or more search words in one box at a time for more results, horizontally. You do not need to use the word 'or' itself (space will do). The more words entered, the more results found. If you use more than one box, you also make use of the logical operator AND.
Separations (new lines) between boxes operate like a logical AND. Enter search words in one or more boxes, vertically. The more words entered, the less results found. If you use more than one word per box, you also make use of the logical operator OR.

 

Search AND and OR

 

Example

We use letter combinations instead of words to make this a clarifying example. If your "words" are AA AB AC, then:

if you search for A OR B, the result will be: AA, AB, AC;

 

Search for A OR B

 

if you search for A AND B, the result will be: only AB;

 

Search for A AND B

 

if you search in one box for (A OR B) AND (B OR C) in another, the result will be: AB AC. Explanation: the result of (A or B) is AA AB AC;  the result of (B or C) is AB AC; since AB and AC are both in the first AND in the second result, they are also are in the final result.

Search for (A OR B) AND (B OR C)

 

In this example the "word" only referred to Note headers, but in a global search the same applies to all CRPA texts:

Note headers
Note texts;
Sheet headers;
Attachment headers;
Attached filenames.
