NOT W/n (Within n Words) Connector

The NOT W/n connector tells the product to find documents in which the first search word is found. The second word need not be in the document, but if it is, it cannot be within n words of the first word.

Note: NOT W/n connectors cannot be used in combination with other proximity connectors (e.g., W/s, W/p, etc.).

For example, the following search finds documents in which the word "york" occurs but the word "new" is not within two words of it:

york NOT W/2 new
