    ME V11 under Windows/7 I’m trying to use file find search with the “OR” operator. I’m looking for files that contain the strings 123 or 789. I tried the search argument 123|789 but ME did not find anything. The strings do exist, I can search for 123 and 789 as two different searches and the files are located.

    Hi,
    I will assume you are doing a regexp search. This is the format for a Unix style search.
    (123)|(789)
    For some reason the search engine prefers the brackets when using | (or).

    Thanks,
    Clay
