Search Database for Species

OCCURRENCE

ARB_NT/Species/search

ARB_NT/<species button: 4th broad rectangular button in

top area>

 

DESCRIPTION

Searches for a (set of) species (not SAIs) that match (don't match) a query or are marked.

The database is scanned for 'species' (see 'HELP') which contain (or do not contain) the search string within the specified 'field' (see ´Glossary´). The corresponding species and the respective 'field' entries are listed in the 'HIT LIST' subwindow. The number of hits is displayed after the 'Hits:' prompt.

Define whether matching or non-matching species should be listed by pressing the appropriate combination of left and right buttons in the top area. When performing multiple searches, define whether the list of 'species' should be replaced by the new results, and whether newly found 'species' should be removed from or appended to the existing list.

Select a 'field' from the 'Search Field' subwindow.

Type the search string in the 'Search string' subwindow.

Press the <SEARCH> button.

 

NOTES

see ´Searching´ for details about searching.

    Press:                     'SEARCH'
  2. Search for all species that are marked:

    Press:                     'SEARCH'
  3. Search for all species that are marked and for which an entry is present in the field 'reference'
    Select:                    Search all species that are marked
    Press:                     'SEARCH'
    Select:                    Keep species that match the query
    Select search field:       'reference'
    Type search string:        '*' (=search existing entry)
    Press:                     'SEARCH' again

 

WARNINGS

If the hitlist becomes too long, it will be truncated. Nevertheless all operations work on non-truncated hitlist!

Changing the sort order will most likely show different items, because the list gets truncated after it was sorted.
