Searching for a String

You can search your IMS database for a string beginning from your current position in the database. You can search all of the database contents occurring after that position, or you can restrict the search to:

Searches can be case-sensitive or case-insensitive.

  • You can search through a database forwards but not backwards.
  • When you invoke a search, your current position in the database changes to the last segment searched even if the search operation fails to find the string you have entered.
