Finding ranges of information
You can find ranges of information, such as all records that contain a field value that is greater or less than a number, or between two particular dates. A range is different based on the data type:
Numbers: least to greatest
Text: first to last word, based on the index order of words (not the sort order). A word can be a single character; for example, a find on a field for <M would return every record that contains a word less than M in the field’s index order.
To find ranges of information:
For more information, see Making a find request.
.. or ...
(two or three periods)
{..} or {...}
(two or three periods)
{7...9}:15 PM
Based only on certain date or time components such as month, year, or minutes (see more examples below)
* or type nothing for each component you don’t want to specify
2014 *:30 PM
When you’ve entered the find criteria that you want, click Perform Find in the status toolbar, or choose Requests menu > Perform Find.
When searching for ranges of information in date, time, and timestamp fields, you don’t have to specify all date or time components. For example, you can type 5/2014 instead of 5/1/2014...5/31/2014 to find all dates in May 2014.
You can combine operators to simplify range searches. For example, type */{10..15}/2014 to search for all dates in 2014, but only for days from the 10th through the 15th.
