Nested Queries

You can enclose search terms and their operators in parentheses to specify the order that they are interpreted. Information within parentheses is read first, then information outside parentheses is read next. The following example is interpreted to mean: Find pages that match adobe or cognisoft as well as verity.

Search example

Note

In contrast to the previous example, this query produces 96 matching pages (rather than 97) because the file back.doc contains cognisoft but not verity.

Nested Parentheses

If there are nested parentheses, the search engine processes the innermost parenthetical expression first, then the next, and so on until the entire query is interpreted. The following example is interpreted to mean: Find pages that match adobe or cognisoft as well as verity or pages that match intel.
