Advanced Search allows you allows you to type longer, more complex search strings. After executing the search, Advanced Search displays Results for each of the terms in your search - along with the number of hits and documents. The total number of hits and documents is shown at the bottom of the Results list (highlighted in gray).

Use your database dictionary to search for keywords and also to add words directly to a search string in the Advanced Search panel. You can also use your dictionary to see if a word already exists (has already been indexed). If a word is not in the dictionary, use relational searching.
To open the Dictionary dialog, in the Advanced Search Panel of the Navigation Pane, click the Display the database dictionary link. This list contains every word, other than stopwords, in the database since the last index or reindex. If the database is concatenated, the list displays only words in the primary database.
While the Dictionary dialog is open you can:
•Select a word and click the Add button to add it to the search string in the Advanced Search panel. The Dictionary dialog closes.
•Double-click a word to add it to the search string without closing the Dictionary dialog. You can then pick additional words to add. Additional words will be added separated by OR in the search string. Click Done when you are finished specifying the OR phrase.
You can add words to your search string directly from the Dictionary list by selecting a word and clicking Add.
