Just did it again, -I got 200 results, but none are about drive chains!
Did you check that those 8220 results contained information about drive chains Les?
I assume it must be my end... seems weird though.

BTW are we talking about the same thing? -I'm referring to the 'internal' SEARCH function. You've put in a link to an external Google search. ?

Hi Jools,

(And, yes I've read and re-read the tips,

Errrm ... On the Search page, if you click on "Advanced Search Tips" beside "Keyword Search Terms", a small page comes up with three "Tips". The last is, "Use quotes around a phrase to search for a phrase". I just tried "drive chain" (including the quotes) and got the "Your search for '"drive chain"' returned 200 results." message and links to the first 25.

Btw, the top message is yours in this thread ... wink

When all else fails, RTFM? grin

Hth.

Thanks Stuart, as you say "RTFM"!
I hadn't understood the significance of including the quote marks around the search words, I'd assumed it would pick up either or both of those words if typed without quotes. Now I know.
Cheers
Jools
