      multiple requests vs value list?

      Post

      I want to be sure:

       

      Is doing a multiple request find such as:

       

      name = john

      name = bill

      name = ted

       

      the same as doing 1 find request with a valuelist pasted into the name field?

       

      name = john

      ¶bill

      ¶ted

          Not the same.  Multiple find requests produce an OR condition.  So:

           

          request 1 Name = John will find records with John or those with John in the multiline (no matter where in the multiline).

          OR

          request 2 Name = Bill will find Bill or Bill in multiline ... etc

           

          Whereas a multiline will only find records with all three names (it produces an AND) condition.

           

          UPDATE:  Also if you are searching for a multiline, it will find any multiline records with all three of the names (also regardless of their order in the multiline).
