How to Use the Retrieve Frame
To use the Retrieve frame, follow these steps:
1. Enter search conditions in the columns of the Retrieve frame form to qualify your search. Qualifying a search limits the results to records (rows) containing the types of data you specified in the Retrieve frame. For example, to look at only those records pertaining to the advertising department, only records for the month of January, or only records of employees with salaries greater than $30,000 per year. For more information, see Search Qualifications (see page Search Qualifications).
2. Use the optional Order operation (see page Order Operation--Sort Query Results) to specify the order in which you want to view the retrieved records. For example, to view records chronologically, or by department, or size of budget.
3. Select the Go operation (see page Go Operation--View Retrieved Records) to start the search.
4. Select the Query operation to begin a new query.
