I want to search the entire bible for every verse 40.

How do I create the syntax for a search like that please?

If I tell you how will you tell me why? I believe that you could use a highlight similar to the visual filter http://community.logos.com/forums/t/39345.aspx and then do a search on that highlight. I've never tried it but it sounds like it should work.

Thanks for a speedy reply!

Ok, I'll confess Smile  My wife is turning 40 and I wanted to look and see if any *:40's would be applicable, humorous in some way, fun to see just what they are.  Hope that makes sense.

 

thanks

thank you!

You are too clever. :)

How did you get the first part of your search parameter "surface text"?

Hi Aaron

Aaron Knotts:

You click on it - by default it will say "All Text". Clicking on it shows a range of options to allow you to modify the range of the search - expand the one that says "Search Fields" and choose the field(s) you are interested in.

More information about this is in the "Fields" section of http://wiki.logos.com/Detailed_Search_Help - the whole article is well worth reading.
