Concept Search - What can I type?
For a concept search, you can enter phrases, sentences, or full paragraphs in English. For example, copy and paste the abstract of a patent application or paragraphs from an article.
Concept search eliminates the need for complex Boolean syntax to inform retrieval. Our Semantic Gist engine uses advanced cognitive semantic analysis to extract the meaning of data. This reduces the chances of missing valuable information, that may result from traditional keyword searching.

Method for Writing a Backorder And Invoice At the Same Time
A method is described which permits the entry for a single transaction set in a
PC system to be confined to a single entry set.
In accordance with this method, the user enters the header information
(name, address/manager, etc.) once, and then enters a transaction for each item.
Backorders and invoices can be entered under one header. The status of the
received entry (as determined by the content of a user input field) determines
whether the transaction will be considered to be an invoice (amount deducted
from onhand and billed) or a backorder (waiting to be filled when inventory
arrives). One reference number will exist for the transaction. When this part of
the program is complete, the invoices and backorders will be separated into two
different files (Invoiced - unbilled and Backorders). When all transactions have
been completed for the header, all records will be brought together in the
archived file (Billed invoices) and each will have its own date given and the same
reference number (supplied by the system).
