Search results enhancements

IBM® Cognos® Analytics search now provides detailed explanation of the search results. The keywords in the search results are emphasized by using the bold font style.

Sometimes you might want to know why certain items appear in the search results, and where exactly is the keyword found. With this information, you can also verify if the search result is applicable.
