If you have two or more fields for the same Keyword Type, each of these fields is separated from the next by one of the following logical operators: And, Or, or To. The current logical operator appears to the right of the first of the two Keyword Type fields.

You can create an additional Keyword Type field by double-clicking its name or pressing F6 while your cursor is positioned in the data entry field of the Keyword Type you wish to add. This automatically inserts a logical operator button to the right of the original Keyword Type field.

To change the logical operator in use, click the logical operator button, which scrolls through the available options:




Searches for documents containing the Keyword Values preceding and following the logical operator.


Searches for documents containing either the value preceding the logical operator or the value following the logical operator.


Searches for all values that are between the two values (i.e., that are greater than or equal to the first value and less than or equal to the second value). This operator is unavailable for alphanumeric Keyword Types.


When you use the Or operator and one document has both Keyword Values, OnBase retrieves two separate records for that document. For example, you perform a search for the Keyword Values Sarah Adams Or John Adams. If the same document has both values associated with it, then OnBase displays a record for each occurrence of the Keyword Value (one record for Sarah Adams, one record for John Adams).

If you have more than two Keyword Values for the same Keyword Type, then the logical operators are processed in order of occurrence.
