Hi all,
Is it possible to search for the occurrence of two given words within the range of five verses. Like, how often does x-word and y-word occur within the range of five verses through out the OT.
Do I need to set up a GSE-search, or can it be done from the command line?
Thanks!
Morten

I think it should be a basic command line search. This is listed as one of the command line examples and I think does what you want.



.paul barnabas;5

"paul" AND "barnabas" within 5 verses of each other

To find Paul and Barnabas within five verses of each other:

.paul barnabas;5

That and other "Command Line Examples" can be found under the search bar's TOOL menu.

Thanks to both of you! I actually checked the command line examples - but not well enough, it seems! :cool:
Thanks

I've been known to ask an "obvious" question on these forums in the past. BibleWorks is a complex and powerful program--and these forums are a font of ready help.
