Different Types of Search Patterns

Using Simple Search from PaperSave, you can search the desired text by specifying different Full Text Search patterns as described below:

 

1.“AND” Operator:

 

Example: Microsoft AND Disclaimer

 

This will search the contents having “Microsoft” AND “Disclaimer” both the words.

 

Note:

You can also use ‘&’ (Ampersand) symbol instead of ‘AND’ in search string.

 

2. “+” Search  :

 

Example: Microsoft + Disclaimer

 

This will search the contents having word ‘Microsoft’ plus ‘Disclaimer’.

 

Note:

· Search results obtained using "AND" and "+" is same. So you can use either of them.
· Using "+" operator is not supported in Advanced Search.

 

3.“OR” Operator:

 

Example: Microsoft OR Disclaimer

 

This will search the contents having “Microsoft” OR “Disclaimer” either word. This means the result of the content search will return all those records where the word “Microsoft” or “Disclaimer” exists in the contents.

 

Note:

You can also use ‘|’ symbol instead of ‘Or’ in search string.

 

4.“Phrase” Search:

 

Example: “American soccer teams”

 

This will search the contents and list the result if the whole string “American soccer teams” exists in the contents.

 

Note:

When searching phrase quotation marks are necessary.

 

5. “*” Search:

 

Example: “Micro*”

 

This will search all the contents where it finds ‘Micro’ as a prefix in any word in the content.

 

6. “-” Search:

 

Example: Microsoft - Disclaimer

 

This will search the contents having ‘Microsoft’ but not ‘Disclaimer’.

 

Note:

Using "-" operator is not supported in Advanced Search.
