MyField like '+ship* @0 online* internet* w/6' or MyField like '+shop* @0 online* internet* w/6' or MyField like '+commerce @0 online* internet* w/6' or ... etc.
This gets cumbersome to construct, and I was hoping to find a more compact syntax along the lines of:
MyField like '(+ship* or +shop* or +commerce or ...) @0 online* internet* w/6'
Another reason we'd like to be able to do this is that our application also translates our texis queries to the syntax required by a third party search engine that we use for the purpose of finding and purchasing additional data for our databases. That engine occasionally balks when the queries are structured in the "non-compact" form described above (albeit translated to the proper syntax) with a lot of structural repetition. The code that does a one-to-one translation from the texis syntax is easy, not to mention already implemented. Building code to recognize where phrases are repeated and combining them into a more compact structure, as well as translating that revised structure, would be much harder.
So far nothing I've tried seems to work right. Is there syntax for this sort of thing? Thanks.
