    Default Limit on how short a search term is?

    You can't search on SBB or HAS or AFB or EFB or HMF or AHB or AMM or DCA or DWV or HBH or HSC or TBH or LGO or PC or PDB or QMP or SBV or SC or TM because they are too short. Is there a way to allow this?

    Ah. Good catch. I couldn't search on "CCD" a while ago but I figured the software was having a bad hair day and I had to run. Then I forgot about it.

    I've never run across a search engine that has a minimum letter requirement!

    coyote, tbh didn't work for me. How'd you get around the no fewer than 4 letters sign?:confused:

    I have the search option set to limit the size of indexed words. The smaller this number is, the larger the search index, and conversely the database is going to be. Below 4, you get into all kinds of words that would be server intensive. Do what coyote said and put an asterisk after it. Seems to work.
