The list is divided into pages. Each page includes:

  • 10 records if you entered a basic search
  • 10 (default), 20, 30, 50, or 100 records if you entered an advanced search

The list includes the following columns and information for each record:

  • Item number that indicates the record's position in the list
  • Question, including the KB record number and question in the record (with your search words highlighted)
     Note: QuestionPoint truncates long questions to about 240 characters and adds an ellipsis (...) to show the truncation.
  • KB in which the record is located (appears only if you searched more than 1 KB)
