Using EV DA 10

I've been asked to perform a search as follows

         (alpha* OR beta*) AND (gamma* OR delta*)

can this be done as a single line?

 

I believe the two line equivalent would be

alpha* beta* +gamma*

alpha* beta* +delta* 

 

Also using analytics or otherwise can a within X words proximity search be achieved?

I believe NEAR is fixed at 50 words which is quite broad.

Whereas wildcards would need to compass all distance variants. i.e. a * b , a * * b , etc.

 

Thanks in advance

Have you seen the attached?

To get the results you want I think you should use the two line approach.

For your proximity search you are pretty much stuck with 50 words, if you want anything more robust functionality you need to start looking at Clearwell.

Hi Tony,

Yes I'd previously reviewed the DA guides including the Effective Searching document. 

Interestingly from the formating it looks like the request came from someone familar with Clearwell.

Cheers
