List of Options

The following options are displayed.

Name & Location Tab

Filters the file search based on file type, file name, and location.

Named

Specifies the full or partial file names to include in the search. When entering multiple
file names, enclose each name in quotation marks.

Use the following wild-card characters to broaden your search:

  • * (Asterisk): Matches any string and can be used anywhere in the search string.
  • ? (Question mark): Matches any single character; for example, ?BC matches ABC, 3BC, and so on.

The type of files to include in the search is determined by Type, so you don’t need
to enter a file extension in Named. For example, to find house102.dwg, enter house* and set Type to Drawing (*.dwg).

Type

Specifies the type of files to include in the search. Available file types are limited
to those supported by the specific standard file selection dialog box.

Look In

Specifies the location to search. Enter a location, choose a location from the list,
or choose Browse to navigate to a location. When entering multiple locations, enclose
each location in quotation marks.

Browse

Displays the Browse for Folder dialog box, in which you can navigate to a location
for the search.

Include Subfolders
