Search Bar

by Paul Ziino

Here's a quick tip for an easy way to search your database.  Go to View/Search Bar and make sure it is checked.  Via the Search Bar you can do a "contains any of" query in the Primary and Secondary fields of the data, without having to open a new query box. 

For example: type LOVE in the search bar and press Enter to receive a list of all songs with LOVE in the Primary or Secondary fields of the data (typically Title and Artist, this can be set under Dataset/Library/Fields.  For more info, search for Primary Field in the online Help).  You'll get titles such as "Love Walks In", "Looking for a New Love", "I Knew I Loved You", and artists including Loverboy, G. Love and Special Sauce, and Dana Glover.
