QuerySearch
Query searches help you search the contents of forms attached to your topics, as well as the values of other meta-data attached to the topic. Using query searches you can search:
RegularExpression
Regular expressions (REs), unlike simple text queries, allow you to search for text which matches a particular pattern.
