Ok guys, what am I doing wrong? Wanted to search threads for Garmin GPS. Typed in "garmin gps" just "gps" and just "garmin".
No takers!!!!! Dont tell me this subject hasnt been thrashed to death on the forum already.

Thanks in expectation, anticipation, constipation and frustration

Yup! Just about gave the mouse concussion. And put in dates from May 2006 to today. would case sensitivity have any bearing?

I don't think it matters - I just used lowercase.
Try without dates - I did not specify time period,

Thanks Saharaman, Ill give it a go. I was of the idea that it wouldnt work without dates. Just shows your never too old to learn

Saharaman, go to the top of the class. I wonder why putting dates in screwed it up

Thanks Cheers Pop

I am convinced that computers can sense fear and trepidation and play on that fear, then when u have logged off they sneak off to a chatroom and moan about their users

Bonz, I think you might be on to something, I havent been comfortable with the way the little green eye on the front of this one keeps winking at me. (sssshhh, there it goes again) Anyway I think i will go outside and play with my new 2nd hand metal detector. I think it understands me. Just a quick browes of the manual and I think it (with the right settings) will cook me a nice hot meal and if my interpretation (or warped mind) is correct it might make a good companion on a cold lonely night. (nudge nudge wink wink) :-)))))))))

You need to put the search word in Search for, not Thread.
