Concordance Query File to Search for Multiple Documents


If your document productions have been loaded in a Concordance database use a query file to bring up multiple documents that you have listed by the bates number in a separate source document. A query file is simply a text file that you create which lists the bates numbers in the first part and then directs Concordance to to pull up the search hits in groups later. See the example below. When entering the review numbers for Concordance be sure to drop the colon used for the bates number searches, and put two spaces after the word, 'SEARCH'. Also be sure to place an extra return at the end of the file. You must have the exact same number of review numbers listed at the bottom of the file as you have bates numbers listed to search for at the top . In the example I have given I used many more review numbers than appropriate, so that anyone reading this can select the number they need rather than replicating the sets of 20 review numbers when they need to search for a few hundred documents. Be sure to always begin the review numbers with one, and not the current review number in the Concordance database.

When you have the text file ready, save it with a 'qry' extension. Go to the Save menu and select 'Execute Saved Queries' and browse to the query file you created. The documents will come up. If you searched for more than 20 documents, you'll need to combine the searches using the numbers Concordance assigned to them.
