Thread: Search Question

  1. #1

    Default Search Question

    I would like to list all of the sentences in the Book of Job that end in a question mark. What I am looking for is all the questions that Job asked in the book so that I can use them in a sermon series.

    Default Searching on punctuation

    Hi, Howard,

    You can do this using the ASE. Read the help section entitled "How to search on punctuation."

    I suggest you use the attached ASE query. It has the advantage of highlighting only the word immediately preceding the questions mark, as well as showing instances of one or two questions within the same verse.

    Hope this helps.

    Actually, I now realize I built a more complex ASE search than what was really required, due to the fact that I wasn't turning on the "Cross vs." option in the first example. If you get rid of one of the subqueries in my original query you will be fine.
