Macros

User Thesaurus Plus can be used to import and edit Macro files for use with dtSearch. These files are used when you perform a search, for example if you enter a macro such as @IRC in the Search dialog,  dtSearch  will replace that term with internal revenue code in the actual search query.

 

Macros are useful for frequently used search terms to save typing a long query. There is no need to have more than one word or phrase, unlike a synonym file where it is always necessary to have more than one word or phrase in the set of synonyms (also referred to as a synset, synonym set or synonym ring).

 

Note: Phrases in a Macro should be quoted to ensure that they will be searched as a phrase in an 'All Words' search.

 

To import a macro file, from the File menu choose Import file..., User Thesaurus Plus will automatically recognise that it is a macro file and will change the user interface accordingly.
