You can use the word-level field restriction operator--the colon--to search one or more fields for a particular query term.
word:field1,field20where word is the query term to be sought and field specifies one or more fields to which the search will be restricted; if you specify multiple fields, their names must be separated by commas. You can use partial field names with this operator.
The word-level field restriction operator will be distributed through scope of operation delimiters. For example, the following query:
(Harding AND Gillooly):defendantis equivalent to:
Harding:defendant AND Gillooly:defendantExamples:
Renfield:name,supervisor Abdul:author AND Necronomicon:titleThe first query will retrieve records that contain Renfield in either of the name or supervisor fields.
The second query will retrieve records that contain Alhazred in the author field and Necronomicon in the title field.
