Queries

The NAV Finder is shipped with a small set of queries that define what you can search for in your NAV installation.

You may want to change the existing queries to search different fields or maybe you would like to define your own queries. This is quite possible with the NAV Finder. However, modifying queries require knowledge of the SQL language.
