Re: [BCAB] file search parameters LU OGBE 12 Sep 2011 07:52 BST

Joe,

Have you tried the following syntax?

"*.rtf" OR "*.doc"

This should list all the .rtf & .doc files. I'm using Win 7 & this works for
me  when I click on the start button & type this command. HTH.

Regards,
LU

Hi Gordon,

I wanted to have results for two file types in the same search.

It's not the end of the world though, just a fancy where I know that
data may be replicated across various file formats.

Thanks, and have a peaceful Sunday.

Joe
