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.
"cat food" (quotation marks)
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
cat ^ mouse
|A combination of search types

Field Name Type the name of the primary key field for the table to create a Type 0 data map, or type the name of the join field to query for Type 1 and Type 2 data maps. This is a required field for all data map records. Array? Type

AS Field No Type the ID number of the join field to query in an Arrayed Structure. This ID number is defined in the dbdict. Map Query Type the query to identify source records in the primary table. Adding a query to this field makes the record a Type 0 or Type 2 data map depending on whether you specify a Query File value. You must write this query in the Service Manager query format, and you can use the following variables:
$umapdata — This variable stores the value of the Field Name field of the current record. For example, if the Field Name is name, the value could be an operator.

$umap.modtime — This variable reads the value of the current modification time in the purge or archive record.
