Search keywords and file properties can be combined to broaden or narrow a search with operators. The following table explains common operators used in a search query.
|NOT||social NOT security||Finds items that contain social, but not security.|
|-||social -security||Finds items that contain social, but not security.|
|OR||social OR security||Finds items that contain social or security.|
|Quotation marks||"social security"||Finds items that contain the exact phrase social security.|
|Parentheses||(social security)||Finds items that contain social and security in any order.|
|There may only be one operator for NOT and OR. The operator must be in uppercase and cannot be combined in one query (e.g., social OR security NOT retirement).|
