Result lists

The result of a search performed using the modes "Basic search", "Monitoring" or "Expert search" will be displayed as a result list. It provides a short overview of the contents of your search result.

On the search form you can customise your result list by choosing the data fields to be displayed on the result page. Each data field chosen will be shown in a separate column.

The order of the individual results corresponds to the your selection from the drop-down menu "Result list sorted by" in the entry form.
By clicking on the heading of the respective column you can change the sorting of the generated result list.
You can individually adjust the column width of the result lists by using the mouse to pull the respective column to a different size.
Your search terms will appear marked and bold in the selected text fields of the result list (highlighting).
Multi-field sorting, that means sorting by various criteria, is not possible.

You can select from the dropdown list "Results/Page" the number of results per page - between 25 and 250. Within the result list, you can go to the previous and next page and jump to the first and last page of the result list.

The result lists for all searches are limited to 10,000 results.
If your search returns more than 10,000 results, only the first 10,000 results(maximum) will be shown and a message will appear indicating the limit has been exceeded. You should then narrow your search by entering additional search criteria.
