Lesson 7. Searching and Indexing Databases > Set Search Conditions and Options

Set Search Conditions and Options

Don't be disappointed if you don't get the results on your first try. Sometimes, you are too specific and might not get what you want on the first try. At other times, you are too general and get too many results to sift through. Setting search conditions and options is a way of refining your search to get better results.

Use Options

There are two options to use when searching. The first is Word Variants, which expands the search to include variations from the root word (when searching for "bowl"it also looks for "bowling,""bowls,""bowler,"and so on). The second is Fuzzy Search, which allows some room for misspellings (such as when you type "Philadlphia,"but it still finds "Philadelphia").
