I tried a straightforward search today and had unexpected results. I wanted to find all the times that the NAU translates εν as "among." I used the following search line syntax with the search limited to the NT:
This produced 200 hits. The third of these, Matthew 7:9, does not contain the word εν or the Strong's number 1722. It contains the word "among," translating εξ. I didn't keep looking, but I'm sure I could find other faulty hits in this list. It's as though the search is totally disregarding my request for the Strong's number. [Out of curiosity, I searched for the word "among" and got 205 hits.]
[If it makes any difference, I'm using BW7, current with updates.]
I assumed I'd gotten the syntax wrong, as this was my first such search. I checked the Online Help file, and it seems I was doing it exactly right. To test this, I tried the example provided:
I used that exact search and found the same error resulted. The very first hit, Matthew 1:19, does not even contain a;nqrwpoj!.man@444 will find all verses where "man" is used to translate "a;nqrwpoj".
I thought my search settings might be affecting my results, so I tried the same searches with and without "Extend Strong's Tags to all words" selected, but it made no difference.
Can anyone help? I feel like this should be really simple, but it's not working the way the Help File says it should.
