The Symbol Search dialog offers more complex opportunities to refine your search. You can for example select more than one exchange or symbol type at once.
▪ On the File menu, click Symbol Search to display the Symbol Search dialog.
▪ Enter your search term in the first field on the left side. This can be the name of a security, its ticker symbol or ISIN.
Note You can also choose a search term from a list of terms that you have used before by clicking the arrow button.
▪ You can optionally limit the search results to a number of exchanges. In the Exchanges list, select the check box next to each exchange that you want to include in your search. If you want to include all exchanges, select <All>.
▪ You can also select the symbol types that you want to search for. In the Types list, select the check box next to each type that you want to include. If you want to search for all symbol types, select <All>.
▪ You can search for all characteristics (fields) of a symbol, or limit the search to its name, ticker symbol, ISIN or local ID (e.g. WKN). In the Search By list, select the check boxes next to each field that you want to include.
▪ You can also include ceased symbols (for example expired futures contracts) in your search. To do so, select the check box Search ceased symbols.
▪ When you have finished your settings, click on the green button or press the Enter key to start the search.
▪ The search results are displayed on the right side of the Symbol Search dialog.
▪ Click on the symbol that you want to open in a document.
