Refine Search - Search Last Results Only

After you have done a search, the Refine Search function appears at the bottom of the search results display. This feature allows you to revise or refine your current search. The Refine Search function displays the search criteria you specified in a previous search session. You can choose to keep or remove these previous specifications and then specify additional search criteria.

In the Refine Search function, you can also choose to narrow your search by searching only within the results of the last search you performed. To perform this type of search, click on the Search Last Results Only check box.

Then, click on the Search button to start your search.

If you checked the Search Last Results Only check box, the search engine will search only within the results of your last search, otherwise it will search the whole database. The Refine Search - Search Last Results Only function can be used for searches on any search criteria.
