How to build a search query in Datamaran's Report search tool.

The Search engine supports different types of queries, including exact match queries, OR queries, AND queries, and proximity queries. The proximity queries look for documents containing two or more separate but related terms within a specific number of words, indicated with the symbol “~”.

SINGLE queries

OR queries

AND queries

PROXIMITY queries*

“Ner zero”

"food waste" OR "solid waste” 

"climate bonds" OR "green bonds"

"modern slavery \"supply chain\"" ~5

Under the search bar you have a sample of each type of query, which you can copy and paste or modify to search for your term(s) of interest. 


You can combine different types of queries and search for more than one term or combination of terms.
