In this post I will explain you how to use the advance search feature of microsoft word.
Document search has always been part of Office, but it’s not always not very easy to use. It used to be its own menu that opened up & requested that you typed what you were looking for. Then you would basically go through the document, one instance of the word or phrase or string at a time. It worked, but it was slow and some what confusing
Microsoft has Desigened Office 2010 and modeled the search function to be more like an online search engine. That means context. When you open search (the shortcut is still Ctrl-F) a sidebar expands on the left side of the screen, and you can type in what “U” are looking for. However, you are now provided with a short text expect from your document, which provides context for what you’re trying to find. When you’ve located what you were looking for you can click on the concerned preview in the sidebar to be taken directly there.This new search feature is much quicker than what was offered before, but you can still access the older menu by clicking on the arrow besides the search magnifying glass. This will present a drop-down menu that includes Advanced Find and Find and Replace, both of which open a menu similar to the older search function. You can also navigate directly to a particular page
