The Advanced Search interface provides a bit more flexibility in searching the Daily Digest.
In addition to the document number fields provided in the Quick Search interface, a search can be filtered by:
- Document Type
The Advanced Search interface also allows for a citation search for the Federal Register, the FCC Record, and FCC 2nd.
Examples: Videos of each example are below.
Using Multiple Fields in One Search
It is possible to use multiple fields in one search. See the short video below for a demonstration of this type of search. Note that when doing a date, title, or description search that FCC or DA documents can be selected, if necessary.
Advanced Search Techniques in Number Fields
Wildcard % - If a partial number is known it can be searched using the % sign to replace the unknown digit. HOWEVER, the % can only be used to replace the digit at the beginning or the end of a number, NOT the middle digit. Example: 14-%18 and 14-12% are valid; 14-1%8 would be an invalid search and not return any results. See the video below. **Also note that this wildcard technique cannot be used in the ECFS search interface.
Using the Filters to Narrow Search Results
The use of filters in the Advanced Search interface is limited to one filter per search; using more than one filter will not return results.
