Locating Surveys By Comment.

 Locating Surveys By Comment

Top  Previous  Next

Survey comments appear in the third column of the Survey List on the Survey Page. Survey comments are recorded in the Editor as the data is entered and they are used to create a detailed description of each survey. This allows you find specific surveys and features in the cave. If however, the cave is large, there may be more comments than you can easily examine manually. For this reason, the program allows you to search all the surveys for matching comments.

 

Initiating A Search. To begin a search, simply click-on the "Find Comments" button on the tool bar at the bottom of list. This will bring up the search window. You simply enter the text you want to search for and press the “Find Next” button. Each time the program locates a survey that matches your search text, the matching survey will be highlighted in the list, and the program will highlight the survey on the screen.

 

Search Options. Searches always start at the highlighted survey. Searches are not case sensitive and will work with partial matches. For example, if you were searching for the word "Big", the program would find "Big Room", "Big Pit", "The Biggest Formation", etc. You can control the direction of the search by selecting the Up or Down buttons.
