Hi guys,
I have a problem when doing a search in my Afrikaans 1983 Bible. It always shows 0 results. When doing searches in other translations, like the 1933/1953 Afrikaans Translation or any English Bible I do get hits.  I tried attaching a screenshot, but for some reason it does not work right now.

I tried rebuilding the Index but it is still the same. Any ideas?

Thanks in advance,
Sarel

Is this a logos resource or a personal book? Do you have any special settings such as “Match all word forms” turned on?

Assuming that you are referring to DIE BYBEL: Afrikaans 1933/1953-vertaling, then it appears that it has no reverse interlinear which is the framework required for many searched. However, plain text searches should work. Can you provide examples of search arguments that don't work?

The other possibility that comes to mind is a corrupted file which deleting resource, closing, opening and letting indexing complete, adding resource back in, closing, reopening and letting indexing complete should fix. Yes, I have too many steps in there but I haven't finished a cup of coffee yet.

This is a Logos resource. I have always been able to search the resource before. It just suddenly stopped, but the other Bibles still work.

Actually the Bybel: Afrikaans 1933/1953 works, it is the other Afrikaans Bible (Afrikaan.lbxlls), known as the Afrikaans 1983, that stopped working.

Yes, it is a normal plain text search, not a reverse search. I searched the word God in both Afrikaans translations. The 1933/1953 gives 4087 results while the 1983 gives 0.

I hope this screenshot helps

Humor me. In the Panel menu is Match Case checked by any chance? Unlikely but ...

Thanks for helping me. It is not selected.

I use this Bible a lot, and it always worked fine.

I tried a different tack and it worked:
I deleted all Afrikaans Bible from my Resource Folder. Logos re-downloaded the resources and after they indexed it is working again

Thanks for all the help
