>>Basic Search<<                

(1) The difference between "Advanced Search" and "Basic Search" is that with advanced search you can enter one or more keywords in 4 separate boxes representing 4 different fields: DATABASE, NAME, DESCRIPTION and FREQ. For example, if you enter gdp under NAME, you will find all those items whose NAME contains "gdp." If you enter gdp under NAME and niaa under DATABASE simultaneously, you will find all those items from "niaa" databank that contains "gdp." On the other hand with basic search, if you enter gdp, you will find all those items that contains "gdp" anywhere, including NAME, DESCRIPTION, etc.

(2) You may enter "," to represent "and", "*" to represent "or", "#" to represent "not". For example:

  or gdp*fish
