Search the Data Dictionaries of all 3 LSs.
This allows use of Boolean search options, search terms such as "+adult -male" can be used to find all entries matching 'adult' but omitting entries that also have the term 'male' from those results. You can read some guidance notes about Boolean Search parameters here.
This automatically uses a wildcard match to any term entered. Searching for 'adu' will therefore match Variable names such as 'ADULTS9', 'MADUMTIM', etc.
This allows you to select from a list of available Tables. The list of Tables is filtered if a particular LS is selected.
