Wildcard Searches

To perform a multiple character wildcard search use the "*" symbol.

The AND operator matches documents where both terms exist anywhere in the text of a single document.

To search for documents that contain "substance abuse" and "youth" use the query:

"substance abuse" AND "youth"



The NOT operator excludes documents that contain the term after NOT.

To search for documents that contain "Medicaid" but not "payments" or “reimbursement” use the query:

"Medicaid" NOT "payments" NOT “reimbursement”
