I have searched the site and forum and have not found a solution.  I need to do a search with a few terms, and would like to limit the results to only those that contain ALL the entered terms.  I am geting thousands of results that are simply not relevant to what I am looking for.

There has to be a way, I just can't figure it out.

Hi Debra,

You didn't say specifically what kind of search you were trying to do, but I think the wiki at http://wiki.logos.com/Detailed_Search_Help may answer your questions. Probably http://wiki.logos.com/Detailed_Search_Help#Using_lists would help you with a list of several terms.
If this is not what you are looking for, post back here with an example of what you are trying to search for.

You can also create collections of resources and run your searches on collections to narrow the results down.

It sounds like you are just looking for the parameter AND:

'love AND truth' will find results that contain both words, 'love OR truth' will find results which contain either of them.
