Hi. :) I was wondering if there was a way to find all words within a specified range using the gse or a similar method. For instance, all the words that are found in both Psalms 1 and 2.

Thanks
John

P.S. It's been a while since I've had to use Bible Works for anything tasking like this... this my memory may not be as fresh as someone else's!
Thanks again,
John

The WLM is a perfect tool for this. First, set your search limits to Psalm 1. Run a search using .*

Then open the WLM and load the search results into the first window.

Repeat the above, only set your limits to Psa 2 and load those results into the secondary window of the WLM.

Now you simply choose words common to both list from the menu.

Of course, instead of running the searches, you can also set your limits from within the WLM itself and then load all words in that limit.
