First let me start by wishing everyone a Happy New Year! I'm happy to share that searching in Constructware has been enhanced for 2009.
You can now search content (text strings) in Word, PDF, Excel and DWF formatted files.
You can now search on:
· Uploaded documents (Word, PDF, Excel, and .DWF)
· Multiple digits like 23,44,999
· Enter wildcard to perform a search. For example, sea* will find season.
· Boolean operators help define the relationships between words or groups of words.
AND Narrow search and retrieve records containing all of the words it separates
OR Broaden search and retrieve records containing any of the words it separates
NEAR Narrow a search by specifying a proximity relationship of fewer than 10 words between search terms.
Check out the CW help menu: Reporting --> Search for more details. Really helpful when your in a bind and need to find that needle in a haystack!
