Merge All of Previous with Current

When you search for a contact in the Office Accelerator database your search result appears under the |Current Search Result| button. If you search for another contact or list of contacts, your current search result will move to the previous search result with your new search results displayed under the |Current Search Result| button. The |Current Search Result| and |Previous Search Result| buttons provide the ability to merge lists together using various Boolean merge capabilities. For example, you can merge all of the previous search with the current, group common contacts from previous to current, and remove the common contacts of the previous search result with the current.

To merge all of your previous search to the current search result, follow the directions below.

  1. Search for list of contacts, the result will be displayed in the current search result.  Search for a list of contacts again, your current search result will move to the previous search result and your new search will become the current search result. Current and Previous Search Result
  2. To merge the previous with the current, click the results menu and select |Merge all of Previous with Current Result|.  Merging the previous search result to the current will combine both lists together creating a new current search result with overlapping (duplicate) contacts removed and unique contacts from both lists combined into one.
    You can also select the |Merge All of Previous with Current Result| icon from the search result tool bar button.
