Difference between "refine" and "search"?

What’s the difference between “refine” and “search”? If I change my search
parameters and hit “refine” I often come up with an emtpy result. Using
"search" does what I expect.

In both cases the “Search Criteria” box shows the same.

“Refine” doesn’t display the resultset, which sometimes can take a bit. it
allows you to build up a more complex search more quickly.On Fri, Sep 28, 2001 at 06:44:07AM -0700, matthew zeier wrote:

Oh, fancy! That’s useful - thanks !

Aha! I had Matthew’s question as well, and I agree that this is good
functionality. How about calling it “Prepare” instead of “Refine”?

I was actually thinking of changing “Search” to “Display” or “Show” and leaving
"Refine" as is. Comments?On Fri, Sep 28, 2001 at 10:47:17AM -0700, Marc Hedlund wrote:

maybe “View Results”… :slight_smile: I don’t think there is much wrong with Display
or Show, but I think the more desciptive it can be the better, and there
isn’t a space issue with the two words on that button, so it would not be a
bad idea…
