PROXIMITY SEARCHING Sometimes when you are searching a database, you find articles that have your search terms, but on separate pages of the article, only vaguely related to each other. In that case, the technique of Proximity searching would be helpful. Proximity searching allows you to search for documents that contain two search terms, in any order, within a specified number of words. Here is an example:
