View Full Version : Verse proximity in the GSE

09-18-2008, 08:48 PM
Is there anyway to use verse proximity in the GSE? When I do the following search (imported into GSE from the command line): ('eij o *@vn*).;3('wste *@vn*), I get the following message.

Can't run query
Verse proximity (in the merge boxes) can't be
used in a query using ordering or agreement.
To mix ordering and agreement with proximity conditions
Use WORD proximity (specified in ordering boxes) instead.

You may need to split your query into sub-queries.
The GSE tutorials give an example of this.

I can run this search from the command line, but I have other searches I would like to do which I can't run from the command line (or at least don't think I can).

Any ideas?

Hi mbixby,

The message box gives the answer: "You may need to split your query into subqueries."

The attached query file has the upper merge box set to 3 verses. The lower two merge boxes are set to be subqueries. I typed your search on the command line, then opened the GSE. Then I checked the "Make subquery" option in the two lower merge boxes.

There is a requirement to turn off the hit highlighting. When you run the search, a message box alerts you to that and offs to turn off the hit highlighting.

Hope this helps.

Aha, that's the key. Thanks.
