1. Individual Search:
In an individual search, the user enters the to-be-searched information in the respective fields, i.e. to search for a last name and a first name, the name is entered in the field provided for the last name, and first name. The user may specify a boolean operator, either AND or OR, as a clarification for the search criteria. For the AND operator, all specified search criteria must match a record, in order for the record to be listed. Furthermore, a Match Case checkbox has been included.
2. Global Search:
The global search is more powerful than the individual search, since it searches all fields in the entire database. Whenever a match between the specified keyword and a word, or part of a word in the databse occurs, the entry will be listed.
The result of any search will be displayed in a Search Result window, which acts more or less like a normal Database window. All options can be used for this window. Therefore, a new search can be conducted on the new database, which is useful in case the previous search produced too general matches.
