Using In Dataset Searches

"Find in this Dataset"

 

The "Find in this Dataset" search box can be used to quickly search a dataset for any occurrence of a given search term. Searching using this text box will result in any matching rows of the dataset returned as a new filtered view of the dataset.

The search performs a simple keyword match. A keyword search will match a number field only if the field is an integer (no decimal point) number. Keyword searches will not match a partial number.

 

A keyword search will match a string field if the keyword matches a complete word within the field. In this way, keywords can match a partial field, but not a partial word. Words in fields can be separated by other characters in addition to spaces such as underscores. Here are some examples of search conditions and whether they are matched:

dimensional

YES

dimensional

dimensional_vortex

YES

dimensional_vortex

dimensional_vortex

YES

dimensional vortex

dimensional_vortex

YES

Other data types, such as date fields, are not matched through simple keyword search. To filter a dataset based on date, the more robust filter feature is required.


In general, a keyword search is useful only as a shortcut to find known values in a dataset. The filter feature allows more flexibility and control such as the ability to filter a column based on the partial match of a word.
