Narrowing Searches

Another example is:

If any of the search terms is not present in a document, that document does not appear in the results list.


Most Verity Query Language operators and modifiers must be enclosed within angle brackets (< >) to distinguish them from the actual query term. The words AND, OR, and NOT are always treated as Verity Query Language operators unless they are enclosed within double quotation marks.

For example:
