Finding files with text search (100/200LX)

You need to find a file quickly. You forgot its name, but you know it's in the root directory of your A: drive and has the text, "Call now" in it. Open FILER and go to A:\. Then press (MENU) Options Text Search.... You'll get the Text Search box that looks like this:

FILER Search Dialog Box: Graphic

 Key in call now and press (F10) (OK). You'll get a "Text Search Results" box that looks something like this:

Search Results Dialog Box:  Graphic

 The smaller In Files: box lists all files that contain the text you searched for. Arrow down to the desired filename and press (F8) to view the contents of the file. (If you've got 100Buddy on your system, you can press (=) to activate the "Text Search" box. Once you've found a file, you can press (F4) or (MEMO) from the "Text Search Results" box to load the highlighted file into MEMO. Once you quit MEMO, you return to the "Text Search Results" box. Not all 100Buddy features work on the HP 200LX.)

The text search only looks at files in the current directory. If you suspect the desired file is in another directory, A:\BUSINESS for example, go to that directory in FILER and perform the text search.
