The Advanced Terms capability of our Compliance Expert puts the power of our Lucene-based search engine at your fingertips.
It provides you with multiple options for a more powerful and efficient search experience.
Importantly, though, by choosing to use Advanced Terms you render the dropdown filters in the Advanced Search null.
Hence, you only can use advanced terms or use the preset filters and keywords, but you cannot use both in the same search.
Using the term modifiers below, you will be able to construct a rich query to find results for your search. First, some important background:
Each term can be further revised by a term modifier:
Fuzzy searches help find words that sound the same but are spelled differently (such as "roam" and "Rome"),
words that have alternative spellings("labor" and "labour"),
those that are misspelled, and those that include a base word but include prefixes and/or suffixes
(search results for the word "plan" will include "preplan" and "planning").
To do a fuzzy search use the tilde symbol (~) at the end of a single-word term.
For example to search for a term similar in spelling to "roam" use the fuzzy search:
You can find words that are within a specific distance away from one another.
To perform a proximity search, use the tilde symbol (~) followed by the number of words that can separate your search words.
If there is a term in your search query of particular importance, you can increase its relevance to the query using the carat operator (^").
If you want to indicate that the word Treasury is more important in your search, use the query:
The higher the boost factor, the more relevant that term will be in your result set.
Of course, the search query also supports the standard set of Boolean operators to specify how your search terms should be combined.
The default operator is OR, so if there is no operator specified, the query engine assumes an OR.
We support using parentheses to group clauses to form sub-queries.
This can be useful if you want to control the Boolean logic for a query:
(federal AND guidance) OR regulation
