Searching a Phrase
To search for documents containing a specific phrase or sentence
In the search box, type the phrase, sentence, or term sequence that you want to find, surrounded by quote marks, and then click Search.Example:
"financial statements of the United Oil company"
Only documents containing the exact phrase or sentence are returned, NOT documents containing sparse or shuffled occurrences of the keywords.
Note: You can use strait (" ") or various pairs of left and right quote marks (such as “ ” or « ») to enclose phrases.
Alternatively, type any of the contiguity operators (. : / \ _ - ') between keywords for which you want to only find contiguous occurrences.Example:
is equivalent to searching "financial statements of the United Oil company".
is equivalent to searching "financial statements" "United Oil". Only documents containing contiguous occurrences of the exact words financial and statements AND contiguous occurrences of the exact words united and oil are returned.
