There are two types of searches found in both The Table Android and Table Web App: the all words search and the exact phrase search.


 All Words

All words searches for a quote containing all words that were typed in the search dialog. The words do not have to be found in the same order in the quote as they were entered into the search field, or be contained in the same phrase.

Ex. Lord refuge                 Finds search hits containing the words Lord and refuge.


 Exact Phrase

Exact phrase searches for a specific phrase, finding the search terms exactly as they were entered into the dialog box.

Ex. Searching for the phrase Eternal Life returns 1,671 search hits (finding the exact phrase as typed into the search field).


Advanced Searching With Wildcards

There are two wildcards which can be used to narrow or expand searches: the asterisk(*) and the @ sign.


The asterisk(*)

The asterisk(*) may be used to expand your search; it can replace zero, or one, or more characters.

When placed at the end of a root word, it finds the root word, and all words containing the root word, as well.

You can place it before or after or in the middle of a word.


Search Terms



great, greater, greatest, greatly, greatness, greats


ward, backward, downward, forward, inward, toward, reward


abrupt, accept, adopt, apt, attempt


The @ sign

The @ sign may be used to narrow your search to a specific year, month, or range of years.

By default, all searches are throughout the entire Message and Church Age Book (CAB) text to find the search terms you are looking for. 

Adding @ can narrow your search to a specific date, year, month, or specifically to the Church Age Book.


Search Terms


@65 love   

searches within all of 1965 for the word love

@65-02 divorce

searches within all of February of 1965 for the word divorce

@64 @65 love

searches within all of 1964 and 1965 for the word love

@cab love

@64 @65 @cab  love

searches within all of 1964 and 1965 and the Church Age Book for the word love


Use the @ in any searches

You are able to combine these with any search terms in both the "all words" and "exact phrase" searches.  However, you should note that when using either @65 or @cab alone in the exact phrase search, a key word must be used as well. You cannot search for the year or within the CAB without doing so.

Combine these search terms with specific words, phrases, or wildcards to yield the results you’re looking for.

You can narrow your search results to find search hits within a specific year or sermon containing the exact phrase Eternal Life:
