Complex Searches

Parentheses and Boolean Logic

This ScreenCast shows exactly how Searches work in Transana, demonstrating the basics of boolean logic, describing the use of parentheses, and illustrating an issue that all researchers should be aware of when doing Searches.

The Boolean operators used in Transana’s search are subject to an “order of operations” just like other mathematical operators are. This has important implications for searches which you need to understand if you will ever use more than two search terms.
