sets are listed in reverse chronological order with the most recent search
set at the top of the table.
Green Highlighted Sets: You do not have

the product. They will continue to run as you originally entered them. You can
identify earlier search queries because they are highlighted in green. All new
search queries, however, are governed by our new Topic and Title search rules
and they are not highlighted.
For more information about our search rules, see Phrase
Gold Highlighted Sets: These are new sets created
in the current version of the product. They reference sets created from an earlier version of the product in which the product found more than 100,000 records. The
record count of the new set, however, may not be accurate. We suggest that you do not combine sets created in an earlier version
if the set contains more than 100,000 records. Instead, recreate new set combinations
to get an accurate count.
