If "Search for" is blank, the entire roster will be displayed.
Otherwise, the search phrase will consist if one or more keywords and optional qualifiers.
A search with a keyword not preceded by "~" will find any record that has a word in the searchable fields that begins with the keyword. For example, searching for "reb" will find the members that have rebel (in boat field) , Reba and Rebekah (in member or spouse name fields) etc.
A keyword preceded by "~" will search for records that DO NOT have any words that begin with the keyword. For instance, searching for "~fs" will find all members who are not listed as having a Flying Scot. A search for "smith ~jo" will search for all members who have "Smith" but not "John" or Joan" in the searched fields.
A search field qualifier ("\" followed by one or more letters) specifies the fields to be searched against. If there is no field qualifier, the default qualifier "\nb" is assumed. The qualifier letters are:
For all spouses who have a name that is (or starts with) "pa", search for "\s pa" or "pa \s"
For all Scot owners that do not live in dallas: "fs ~dallas \ba"
For all who have Garland in their address but not Dallas (to exclude Garland Rd.): "\a garland ~dallas"
For all boardboat pads "bp" and set the page size to 100.
For all the moored boats "mb"
