A Search Example Using Advanced Search








In the example above I added ‘Petone’, i.e. Petone Baptist.

If I want to see all records I’d:

  • Select the ‘enter’ key on my keyboard or
  • Select the right facing arrow button.

However, if I wanted to see just one of the items on the drop down list, then I’d select that item and then run my search.
