Record Search And Filtering  

Contents

If you are looking for a particular record or set of records, there are various ways to do it.

 

If you do not remember to which collection the record belongs, or you know the records you are looking for belong to more than one collections, you should use the "Global Search" command in the main context menu or the corresponding toolbar icon. You will then be prompted to enter a search string and the search results will be displayed in the "All collections" table. Records will be selected which match the search string either in the category or item title or item content fields.

 

If you know that the record or records you are looking for belong to a given collection, you should open the table view of that collection using the appropriate command in the main window context menu or the corresponding toolbar icon. You should then press the "F3" key to open the dialog box to enter the search string (for some collections such as "contacts" etc. the search dialog box is opened automatically when the table window is opened). The result will be displayed in the same table window.

 

You can also use the filter text boxes available in the table windows, to search for records. You can enter your search string directly into the filter or filters associated with the field or fields you want to use for matching. If you use more than one filter, you can chose whether to use and "AND" or "OR" logical operator for the matching rule.

 

Search functions are also available in the calendar window and random map window.
