To search for an exact phrase, surround the phrase with quotation marks. Boolean operators [or, and, not] may be used to refine the search.

Download Help

This feature allows subscribers to quickly view or download a .csv (Comma Separated Values) file. If you have Microsoft Excel on your machine, the download will invoke Excel when viewing or when opening from a saved location. (You do not need Microsoft Excel to utilize the files.) Files in this format can be imported to databases, address books, contact files or used with mail merge applications. (Contact your support personnel with any help or instructions you may need for accomplishing these tasks.) After choosing an area from the side navigation bar (Subscribers and Free Users please take a moment to read the areas of access) select the choices from that page and click download. You will be prompted to either "Open this file from its current location" or "Save this file to disk". If you choose to open the file from its current location and you have Microsoft Excel, the information will be fed into a workbook. Once viewing the file, you can save it. You do not have to repeat the download. If you choose to save the file to disk, you will be prompted for a location – the file can be saved to any accessible writable drive. There is a 100 record limit to a single download.

Name, Street 1, Street 2, Street 3, City, State, Zip, Post City Code, Country, Local Tel, Toll Free Tel, Local Fax, Toll Free Fax, Title, Contact Name, EMail Address, Contact Phone

These files contain the organization’s main record, and one record for each personnel entry provided by the publishers; consequently, there will be multiple records for each organization - one line for each person. Providing e-mail addresses for each person is left to the publisher's discretion, so there may not be e-mails listed for everyone.
