Search Macros

Menu option: Options > Preferences > Macros

Macros can be useful for abbreviating long names or phrases that you use frequently, or abbreviating field definitions in field searches.  A macro can contain anything that can be part of a search request. 

A macro has two parts: a Name, which you use to refer to the macro in search requests, and the Expansion, which is what the macro is expanded to.  A macro name must begin with the @ character in search requests.

For example, if you define the macro @IRC to mean internal revenue code, and then search for standard deduction w/3 @IRC, dtSearch will search for standard deduction w/3 internal revenue code.
