Search Methods – And / Or / Not
You can use these special words to connect your search
terms for specific results:
• AND – returns opportunities containing all of the
parameters you set
e.g., searching for WIND AND ENERGY will find profiles
containing the word WIND and the word ENERGY
somewhere in the field(s) you are searching.
• OR – returns opportunities containing any of the
parameters you set
e.g. searching for WIND OR ENERGY will find all records
that contain the word WIND or the word ENERGY, or both.
• NOT – lets you exclude parameters
e.g., searching for WIND NOT ENERGY will find records
that contain the word WIND but do not contain the word
ENERGY.
В©2006, CSA
Search Language – other tricks
You can use these special characters to connect your search
terms for specific results:
• Wild Card * – find variations on a word
e.g., ENVIROMENT* finds profiles with words such as
ENVIRONMENTAL and ENVIRONMENTS.
• Proximity w/# – find words used together but not
necessarily in an exact phrase
e.g., WIND w/2 ENERGY finds profiles where these two
words are separated by not more than two words, such
as those with the phrase WIND TURBINE ENERGY.
В©2006, CSA
Search Language – more tricks
You can use these special characters to connect your search
terms for specific results:
• Exact Phrase “ ” – find a precise phrase.
e.g., WIND ENERGY in quotation marks finds profiles
where these two words appear together as a phrase.
• Precedence ( ) – execute a series of search commands in a
particular order.
e.g., (HIV OR AIDS) NOT EDUCATION finds profiles with
the terms HIV and/or AIDS, then excludes those with the
word EDUCATION.
