I was wondering if someone could help me with the Graphical Search Engine. I need to perform a simple search, but I'm new to Bibleworks. I need to know how to search for all forms of the word repent* in the KJV and also every Greek form of the word(s) metan* (noun and verb). Any help would be appreciated.

Here is the query. Put the file in the following directory:

C:\Program Files\BibleWorks 7\ase

Then open the Graphical Search Engine go to file/open and select the query. This should give you a model for similar searches.

I would have shown how with an image, but I am currently on dial-up.

Looks like this would be a good time to use the feature that allows you to search on Strong's numbering.

The help files give this example:
.man@444 will find all verses where "man" is used to translate "a;nqrwpoj".

Adapted for your search:
.repent*@3341 should start you off.

If you wanted other forms, you could construct an "or" search to include the other Strong's numbers
/repent*@3341 repent*@xxxx etc.
