It is often useful locate specific items in the survey data such as shots, stations, survey team members or comments. If the file is large, it can be very tedious to manually scan through dozens of surveys, looking for a particular item. For this reason, the Editor allows you search through all the surveys in a file, looking for specific words.
Searching. Before you can search a file, the file must be open. Once you have an open file, you can search for a station by, selecting the "Survey|Find Shot/Station in File" option from the menu bar or by clicking on the "Advanced Search" button on the Survey Page.
The "Advanced Search" window will appear on the screen.
Whole Word Matches. You can also control whether the search looks for whole words. You can toggle this option by clicking on the "Whole Word Match" check box. When "Whole Word Match" is off, incomplete matches are displayed. For example, "A2" would match "A2", "A20", "A21" etc. When the "Whole Word Match" option is on, "A2" will only match "A2".
Viewing Matches. Once you have a list of surveys that contain matching words, you can view a particular survey by double clicking the list. This will cause the highlight in the main Survey List to move to the selected survey. You can then view the particular survey by double clicking on the highlighted item in the main list.
