Hints for searching

Note: The first search is slow as sin, the subsequent ones are pretty darn quick (for an Access database)

The keyword search will try to find a match using the following fields

  • Diary entry
  • Location
  • Map Reference
  • Weather
  • Unit (Battalion)
  • Notes

Selecting the Search Type of "Any Words" will find records with either "Hill" or "70" matching

Selecting the Search Type of "All Words" will find records with all words matching

Selecting the Search Type of "Exact Phrase " will find records with that combination of words. For example, entering "Hill France 70 " in either of the other two cases will find a match, but "Exact Phrase" will not return any records.

Restrict Unit will find only those entries with the search criteria that match the selected Unit

Order By Date or Unit (default) will sort the records output. By date will group all dates together independent of the units. For example, what all units were doing on a particular day.

Records per page will restrict the number of returned records on any single page.
