:) Two question here:

1. ASE is a powerful function. Is that possible to convert a ASE query to be command line sentence?

2. How to show exactly 5 word intervaling in command line?

Thank!

There's no automatic conversion from GSE to command line (though you can go the other direction by entering something on the command line, and then simply opening the GSE).

Many more complicated searches can't be represented on the command line.
However, what you want could be found with a string search and five * between the two words/roots you're looking for, ie. 'the * * * * * Lord

Edit: What was the ASE is now called the GSE (graphic search engine) in BW7.

Thanks for your quick answer. That's what I need.
However, since I want learn command line way better, if BW can provide a auto convert function, that will be good.

Thanks!;)

For searches, you want to learn the GSE. That's where you can do the most powerful searches. The command line is a quick and simple thing, but not meant for complicated things. For general command line help and GSE help, check out the BW7 help files. They do offer many examples.
