You can get plenty of information about this if you can Google……

Hi,

From time to time we see as a response to a question something like:

“You can get plenty of information about this if you can Google..”

I agree with that response but searching can be frustrating .

But there is a helping hand , introducing “Google Advanced Search” http://www.google.com/advanced_search

Lets do a search for “Smart Forms”:

We can see that this was translated to: “Smart Forms” site:help.sap.com

The search use “Search operators” a full list of those can be found using: “Search operators” site:google.com

Note the warning.

Let continue with our search for “Smart Forms” .

I am interested in tables so I go to “Printing Data in a Table” .

(After opening some nodes manually)

We can see that we have “download” lets use it .

The result will be a PDF file that we can read in leisure….

Here is the Table of content of the generated PDF:

Happy searching.

Regards.

p.s. Advanced search is not unique to Google for example Bing also support “Advanced search keywords”

      Hi, Eitan!

      I think "site:blabla.com" is one of the _must_use_ features for any googler 🙂

      I've been using it since it was called "inurl" (by the way, it works either).
