Matienzo Cave Search Help

General points
Words to search for must be 4 or more characters in length, eg cave or 1979 will be found but A32 and dry will not. There are quite a number of common words that are not indexed so cannot be searched for. This is not likely to impede a caving database search, but the words are listed here for checking.
A leading plus sign indicates that this word must be present in a cave description. eg. +pottery will return all the sites with pottery in the description.
A leading minus sign indicates that this word must not be present in any of the descriptions. eg +pottery -bones will select those sites with pottery in the description then remove those sites with bones.
Note: The - operator acts only to exclude rows that are otherwise matched by other search terms. This means a -word cannot be used on its own.
Using words or search terms separated by a , will return a list of sites with any of the search terms in. eg draught, cool, cold will return those sites with any of these words in.
Parentheses group words into subexpressions. Parenthesized groups can be nested. eg +(cold draught) will return those sites with cold or draught in the description whereas +cold +draught will return those sites with cold and draught in the description.
The asterisk serves as the truncation (or wildcard) operator. eg +dig* +draught* -"no draught" would list those sites which had draught or draughting or draughts AND dig or digging or digs but would not list any of those sites which had the phrase "no draught".
A phrase that is enclosed within double quote characters matches only descriptions that contain the phrase literally, as it is typed. eg +update +"December 2007" will list those sites updated in December 2007.
