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||

Data Policy and encryption
Important: If you encrypted any field in your database, ensure that you store the KEY value defined in the sm.ini file in a safe place. Without the correct KEY value, you will not be able to decrypt.
When the Data Policy for a table changes, the system checks to see if the encryption status changes. If the status changes from false to true, each record in the file is read, the field is encrypted, and the data is written back to the file. If the status has changed from true to false, each record in the file is read, the field is decrypted, and the data is written back to the file. The entire process includes reading and updating each record in the file, which could result in performance loss.
Note: Once a field in a table is encrypted, users can no longer search for the contents of the field. The field is not searchable.
