Advanced Searches

Estimated reading time: 3 min

RxWorks has an advanced search facility for breeds, visit Summary Words and fee items.

Activating Advanced Search

  1. Go to the Task Panel.
  2. Select Tools and Utilities.
  3. Navigate to Miscellaneous.
  4. Select Application Settings.
  5. Check the box for ‘Advanced Breed Searching’.

As you will have noticed, these lists can be very long. Even when you use a basic search, you are still left with many terms to scroll through to find the term you are after.
The advanced search changes this.
When you click on the binoculars on a Visit Screen, you will see the Advanced Search button. This option is available in all places that you find the “find item” tool (e.g. Stock Orders, Stock Adjustments, etc). Advanced Search allows you to perform a “contains” search for fee names.

Advanced Search for Breed and Summary Words

To initiate an advanced search, simply start typing in the breed or Summary Words fields. This will cause the Advanced Search box to appear.

Continue typing the first three letters of your search term and the Advanced Search box will display the results so far.

The results will include any word which starts with the three letter search term. As you can see, there are a number of dog breeds that include the letter combination “Col.”
To narrow the search, you need to press the space bar and type another three-letter term. In this example, we are after the Smooth Collie, so we will use “Smo” as the additional search term.

In this instance, “Smooth Collie” was the only breed that matched both our search terms. If there were still more breeds, we could use another search term, or add letters to an existing search term.
Once you find the term you are after, select it with the mouse or scroll up and down with the arrows and then click on OK.
In the next example, we have used the Advanced Search tool from the Summary Words field that appears when you Finish and Action a Visit.

Users of Performance Pack will already know that our database contains thousands of Summary Words, yet here we have been able to quickly any search term that contains the three-letter combination of “mou”. With a space and just three more letters, we would be able to narrow it down further.

Advanced Search for Items

When you click on the binoculars on a Visit Screen, you will see the Advanced Search button. This option is available in all places that you find the “find item” tool (e.g. Stock Orders, Stock Adjustments, etc). Advanced Search allows you to perform a “contains” search for fee names.

The Advanced or “contains” search for fee names works just as for the above two examples, except for Fees.
Typing in 50 rim will leave you with “Rimadyl 50mg Tabs” and “Rimadyl 50mg Palatable” to choose from.
The advanced search option searches the Item Name and Active Ingredients fields for results.

You can also access the Advanced Search for Fee Items option through Visit Screen > Find Item.
