Equal to (=) Operator

When configuring a search, the equal to (=) operator is one of the relational operators you can use to specify the relationship between an index field and an index value in your search criteria.

Though the equal to (=) operator is the default relational operator used, you can select any of five other relational operators from the Operator drop-down list, on the Search page.

NOTE: This list is not visible, until you select a document group and document type, and click the Add condition button, under the Search Criteria heading.

Use the equal to (=) operator to retrieve only those documents that contain, in the specified index field, the index value contained in the search phrase.


Customer Name = Bob's Records retrieves all documents with an index value of Bob's Records in the Customer Name index field.

Ship Date = 01/31/2001 retrieves all the documents with an index value of 01/31/2001 in the Ship Date index field.
