Select one or two database Fieldsto Search,
e.g., Quote, Author, Source, Keywords
Normally "Quote" is the best field to choose.
Often the quote may be about, but not contain, the word you are seeking.
Try "Keywords" which may contain words not actually included in
the quote, but applicable to it.
Select an Operator, "Contains" means "the
field(s) contain(s) the character string keyed below." "Exact phrase"
means "Search the field(s) for the exact phrase keyed below." Obviously
this is a much more restrictive choice. It is best to use it when you are
getting too many hits and think you remember some of the quote.
Word(s): You may search for one or more words, separated
by spaces. In this version of the Query, both fields will be searched for
all words in your list, e.g., if you select Quote & Author Contains fossil
darwin then "darwin" may get hits in either the Author or the Quote
field. We recognize this as a weakness of this version of Query, and hope
to improve it.
In your Word List, do not use any HTML tags, special characters or formating
(such as " , . ' etc.)
Example: "Quote or Keywords Contains fossil flood"
- Both Database fields: Quote & Keywords will be searched for the words
"fossil" or "flood."
Help Build the CSA Quotes Data Base?
The Quotes Database is being built by volunteers. The effort can be done from
your home (if you use the internet) and can be highly educational as we can furnish
the quote sources. If you would like to participate, please contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
