Finding a Holidays Set

Previous pageReturn to chapter overviewNext page
You can search for a specific holidays set, using either its unique internal ID, or its name, using part of its name.

 

From inside the holidays manager, click on the Find button located on the holidays sets toolbar, as shown on the right.

 

The Find Dialog

 

The Find Dialog then appears, and you can search for a particular holidays set by selecting Holidays Set, at the top left of the dialog.

 

 

Look for

 

Depending on the option selected for Look for:

 

If searching for an ID number, then there are no further search settings, as every holidays set ID is unique. Although one rarely refers to a holidays set its numerical ID, being able to find a holidays set based on its ID is useful when using some macro functions, such as IsHolidayForSet.

You can refine the search by specifying that the search should be case sensitive.

Where

 

If you choose to Look for the name, or part of a name, of a Holidays Set, then you can specify the Where option. This option is based on the currently selected holidays set (Azerbaijan, in the examples below).

 

The setting Everywhere is obvious; the search looks at every holidays set, regardless of its position in the hierarchy.

The setting In same folder and below looks at every holidays set below the selected set (see example below left).

The setting In same folder only only looks for sets within the same folder as the selected set (see example below right).

 

Note that the second and third options are based on the folder of the currently selected set, not necessarily the set itself. So, for example, as is the case in the examples below, if the selected set is not a folder, then the search starts from the parent folder of the currently selected set.

 

       

 

The Where settings are not available if your search is based on the ID of the holidays set, since these IDs are unique and therefore a search Everywhere is the most logical.

 

Results

 

After you click on the Find button, the first holidays set matching the search settings is selected in the tree-view list of holidays sets. If you are searching for part of a name, you can then click on the Find Again button to navigate to the next holidays set which matches the search settings.
