Why did this happen? Am I missing something or is this a bug?

Thanks for the post, I have passed on your concern to the devs.

Hi Kevin.

I haven't installed the beta at home so can't comment on the datasheet. But I think you want to use the "ANDEQUALS" operator instead of the AND operator. I believe that AND looks for the two elements in the same verse/article, while ANDEQUALS will look for where your two items are indexed at the same point (word). I ran the search with ANDEQUALS and didn't get your spurious Jn 15.9 hits (didn't check any others).

Hope it helps.

Thanks Rick,

You are right that the ANDEQUALS eliminated the agape hit in Jn 15:9, however there were still the articles present, I can live with the article coming up, but when I ran your recommended search it had some unexpected hits, I sorted by lemma to make the extraneous hit obvious,  look below.

In 4.0a Beta 1, a datasheet generated from a reverse interlinear shows all information from the locations where hits are found; this includes other morphs and lemmas that are part of the same reverse interlinear "cell".

If you're searching for Greek words, not English words, you will get better Greek results by running the search on a Greek NT, not a reverse interlinear.

Fair enough. If I was concerned primarily with lemmas I wouldn't bother with the reverese interlinears, I'd go straight to one of the NA27s. I was just curious why there were extraneous hits, and now I know.

Thanks
