Searching the Help
To search for information in the Help, type a word or phrase in the Search box. When you enter a group of words, OR is inferred. You can use Boolean operators to refine your search.
Results returned are case insensitive. However, results ranking takes case into account and assigns higher scores to case matches. Therefore, a search for "cats" followed by a search for "Cats" would return the same number of Help topics, but the order in which the topics are listed would be different.
|A single word||
||Topics that contain the word "cat". You will also find its grammatical variations, such as "cats".|
You can specify that the search results contain a specific phrase.
Topics that contain the literal phrase "cat food" and all its grammatical variations.
Without the quotation marks, the query is equivalent to specifying an OR operator, which finds topics with one of the individual words instead of the phrase.
Two or more words in the same topic
|Either word in a topic||
|Topics that do not contain a specific word or phrase||
|Topics that contain one string and do not contain another||
|A combination of search types||

Renaming a database dictionary
After you create a database dictionary, you can do one of the following:
- Change the name of the dictionary.
- Change the name of one or more of the files sent with the base system.
For example, you can rename the communications file to interactions. This changes the file name but retains all of the field and key definitions in the dictionary.
If records exist in the file, renaming the dictionary associates all of the records with the new dictionary name. This differs from copying a file because it takes only a few seconds to perform this function.
