Finding tables or variables
Use the Find dialog to find a particular table or variable anywhere in the current table document, by searching for a string of characters in the name or description. You can use the Find dialog anywhere in the Tables pane or the Variables pane.
To use the Find dialog, choose Edit > Find from the menu, or press Ctrl+F, or click the Find toolbar button This graphic is described in the surrounding text..
Fields on the Find dialog
Find what
Enter a string of characters. You can search for:
A partial match. Type (or paste in) any words that you want to find. The search finds items that contain any or all of the words. Minor words such as the, a, and and are ignored. For example, a search for quick brown fox would find items such as brown fox, quick cat, and foxtrot.
An exact match. Type (or paste in) the exact text string surrounded by quotes. The search finds items that contain the exact text typed in (including minor words such as the, a, and and). The text can be part of a longer string. For example, a search for "The quick brown fox" would find The quick brown fox escaped from the cat's grasp, but not A quick brown fox.
Match case
By default, the search is not case-sensitive. For example, searching for "quick brown fox", "Quick brown fox", or "Quick Brown Fox" all give the same results. To restrict the search to match the case of the search text exactly, check this box.
Within
Choose whether to search for the text in the Tables pane or the Variables pane.
Look in
You can broaden or narrow your search by choosing either or both of the following options.
Name. Search for the string in the table or variable name.
Description. Search for the string in the table or variable description.
Find Next
Goes to the next instance of the search string.
You can also search for tables or variables directly in the Tables pane or the Variables pane.
