  • The ADBR returns the ONE Topic where this exact wording is found in the ADBR.

From here, double click on the returned Topic which activates the Search Highlight Feature

  • The system returns every Topic where any one of these words is found. The desired preference would be included in this, but obviously would not be easily found.
