Explanation: Help using Wincens
When you start working with a database, you will start at the beginning of it. By default you will see the first ten records. You can navigate onwards and backwards by using the NEXT and PREV. buttons. To execute a search, you first need to choose a field, e.g. Given name, in the Field box, you then write the desired word/name, e.g. Anders in the last box. When clicking on Search, the program will find everyone with the given name Anders. (By default the search engine is set to find matches 'er lik' meaning 'equals'. However this can be changed into 'børjar på' meaning 'starting with', or 'inneheld' meaning 'containing' and 'alle' meaning 'all') The first ten hits will be displayed in the table. You are now able to navigate in this list by using PREV. and NEXT. If there were too many hits, you can narrow the search by choosing, for instance, Last name field, and write Olsen. Now you will only see those called Anders Olsen. With a name like Anna Olsdatter, things become more complicated. First of all, Olsdatter can be written in many different ways, such as Olsdtr. and Olsdatr. Furthermore, Anna can be written Anne. To solve the last matter, you only write Ann*. The asterisk enables the program to process a list of everyone with a given name starting with Ann. You then select from the list those you are interested in. To study more than one name variable you need to press the CTRL-function at the same time as you click the names. When pressing Finn postane, everyone with these names will be displayed in the table. Now you can proceed with Last name and write Ols*.
