    whole word search

    Is there any way to perform a whole word search in the lounge? I see nothing in the Help files.

    I am searching, prior to posting, for any posts that are referring to "wordbasic" and "xp" (as in "Office XP"), but a search described as "wordbasic xp" highlights words/posts such as "expert" (good), and "inexpereinced" (hmmmm).

    A serach for "wordbasic office xp" might cut down the number of results, but I'm not optimistic.

    No. Only standard SQL search operations are available.

    Try putting xp in quotes, with a trailing space. A kludge, but it might help. A search in this forum using that only picks up your post; xp without quotes picks up a number more.

    > with a trailing space

    Thanks. I think i thought of that in an earlier post but dismissed it as it fails on "... Office XP?" etc.

    However, a moment's reflection suggests that a leading space might be the answer (in general)
