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

Set Search Conditions and Options

It's easy to be too specific or too general when searching for information, and in that case, you won't get the results you need. If you're too general, you may get too many documents returned in your view, making it difficult to sift through. Using search conditions and options will refine your search.

Use Options

There are three options to chose from 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”). The third is Search within Results, which allows you to filter down within a search you've already run.
