Using Advance Search

In an advanced search, you can use several types of notation to expand or narrow the search:

  • Wildcards — you can use an asterisk (*) as a wildcard to match any number of characters. For example, ba* would match both ball and bat, *art would match both start and part, and *55* would match both 3559 and 80995572.
  • Boolean Operators — the advanced search function recognizes both text and symbols for Boolean functions. You can narrow your search with AND or a plus sign (+). You can broaden your search with OR or a pipe symbol (|). You can further narrow your search with EXC (excluding) or a minus sign (-). You can use parentheses to control the order of evaluation, such as "(A+B) OR C".
