Search Help

Look for words with the same prefix.
Example - type key* to find key, keying, keyhole, keyboard, and so on.
Search for all forms of a word.
Example - type sink** to find sink, sinking, sank, and sunk.
Search with the keyword NEAR, rather than AND, for words close to each other.
Example - type system AND manager or system NEAR manager, to look for the words system and manager on the same page.
But with NEAR, the returned pages are ranked in order of proximity: The closer together the words are, the higher the rank of that page.
Put quotation marks around keywords if you want Index Server to take them literally.
Example - type the following query:

"system near manager"

Index Server will literally look for the complete phrase system near manager. But if you type the same query without the quotation marks:

system near manager

Index Server searches all documents for the words system and manager on the same page. This search would also include all occurrences of the phrase system and manager.

Refine your queries with the AND NOT keywords to exclude certain text.
Example - type surfing AND NOT the Net, to find all instances of surfing but not surfing the Net.

Using Free Text Queries

If you want to enter queries using natural language. The Index Server will examine your query, extract nouns and noun phrases and construct a query for you. With free text queries you can enter any text you want, from a proper question, to a string of words and phrases, without worrying about the query language. For example, if you type in the following query:

"How do I get registered to vote?"

Index Server will create a query for you automatically and begin the search. Note that when you're using free text queries, the regular query language features are disabled and keywords such as AND, OR, and NEAR are interpreted as normal words.
