Range searching

When searching for numerical values within an index, these operators allow you to specify a range values within which to search.

TO

Specifies an alphabetic, numeric or date range to be searched. For example:

A123 TO A456

Note: for the TO operator to be used for dates, the Intelligent Date Handling options must be selected for the index.

 

GE

GE 1000

...will find "1000, 1001, 1002, 1003 ... 59001"

 

LE

Search for a numeric range less than or equal to the specified value. For example:

LE 1000

...will find "1000, 999, 998, 997 ... -59001"
