Tips for Searching


At its simplest, a query can be just a word or a phrase. But with the tips on this page, you can expand the focus of your query to give you more complete results. These tips will get you started with basic query language and acquaint you with the full power of Microsoft Index Server.

  • Look for words with the same prefix. For example, in your query form type key* to find key, keying, keyhole, keyboard, and so on.
  • Search for all forms of a word. For example, in the form type sink** to find sink, sinking, sank, and sunk.
  • Search with the keyword OR, AND, for words close to each other. For example, system and manager or baby or doll
  • Refine your queries with the AND NOT keywords to exclude certain text from your search. For example, if you want to find all instances of surfing but not surfing the Net, write the following query:
    surfing AND NOT the Net
  • Add the OR keyword to find all instances of either one word or another, for example:
    Abbott OR Costello
    This query finds all pages that mention Abbott or Costello or both.
  • Put quotation marks around keywords if you want Index Server to take them literally. For instance, if you 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.

We hope, these hints will get you started.
