Fill in as many the search conditions as desired. The
search will return all records that match at least one string
from each of the specified fields. To specify more than one
string in a field, separate the different strings by semicolons.
If you specify
you will get no entries back. The strings are interpreted as
Unix style regular expression.
This means that
a "New" in the City field (without the quotation marks) will match New
York as well as New Brunswick.
Numerical fields can be searched with
relative numerical expressions < (field is less than specified
value), <= (field is less than or equal to specified value), >
(field is greater than specified value), >= (field is greater than
or equal to specified value), .. (the inclusive range operator, field
is between lower and upper limit, inclusive. It has to be preceded and
followed by a blank), and <> (the exclusive range operator,
field is between lower and upper limit, exclusive. It also has to be
preceded and followed by a blank).
For instance if you specify 100 .. 200, all entries with a value in
that field between 100 and 200 will be returned. Specifying 100..200
(without spaces) will not work. You can specify multiple conditions in
these fields too (e.g. < 100 ; >= 900)
If you get no entries back, it is probably because there are no matching
entries in the database. This can be either because you mis-typed an
entry or because you specified contradicting criteria, or there really
are no registrations with the specified selection criteria.
If this sounds complicated, that is because it is complicated. You
can do elaborate searches, but the more capabilities the search engine
has, the more complicated it becomes. HINT: start with as few parameters as
possible (add other parameters a few at a time to focus the search when needed).
