Search bars in Spectrum all work the same. You can type in what you're looking for, so if I type it into word 'Seattle,' it's going to find all jobs with the word Seattle in it. Now, people always ask, well, what fields specifically is it looking at? And the easiest way to see that is just to hit F4, and you see the advance search options. When I type 'Seattle,' it's looking for the job number of Seattle, a description of Seattle, customer, et cetera. Of course, city makes the most sense, but the idea is is that it's searching all of these types of fields within the specific database, so if you really only wanted to see jobs that were in the city of Seattle, you would type in 'Seattle' and then say, okay, and you would get a list. Now, it's actually the same list we had before. Not a big deal, but I just want to make sure you guys get the point is that you type in a word, it's going to search all of those fields, but if you need to specifically restrict to, let's say, jobs in the state of Georgia, you put in 'GA' here and that would work for you just fine.'
