    For example if I wanted to do a search for a thread title that contained both "sub" and "corner" I would type:

    sub AND corner

    When I do this search I DO get threads with sub and corner in the title, but I also get threads that have just one of the two words. What am I doing wrong?

    You aren't doing anything wrong. The search will give you all instances of sub and corner not just the two words together.

    Aaaahhh, #@*! that's no fun! For the kind of searches I've been doing it creates a TON of data to wade through. Now I understand why a lot of newbies don't bother researching their topics before posting. But, thanks anyway for the reply Parker!
