Advanced Searches

Advanced searches are the searches which are created and run from either the Search by Form dialog or Define Search dialog. You can perform the same searches from the Search by Form and Define Search dialogs that you can from the Quick Search field. In addition, advanced searches let you search by:

  • any general document property
  • any file property (if file properties have been extracted)
  • any work area type (Define Search dialog only)
  • any spatial location and/or the source of the spatial location. (Note that these are two separate criterion.)
Note: If the underlying database is SQL Server, then searches from these dialogs are not case sensitive. If the underlying database is Oracle, then searches run from these dialogs will be case sensitive, unless your administrator has turned on the datasource setting, Force case-insensitive search.
