is it possible to search my private message?

Postby didochili » Fri Nov 15, 2019

I have a question: is it possible to search my private message? I bought a set of sterling silver from BS years ago. I would like to get the weight and description. I have 1200 messages stored dating back to 2012, so if I can search "sterling" for example, I should be able to easily find the messages with the details I need. I looked around in the pm screen and did not find anything obvious.
Thanks in advance for any help.

No, this is something I've always wanted. I have multiple boxes with 1200 messages each and would love to search them. Maybe some time in the future but not now. Sorry, wish I had a better answer for you.
I'm clearly not very bright.

:wave: nice try. I have completely forgot when. I'm just looking at that set and I'm not an expert of sterling silver, so it's posing as a odd item set for me if I want to sell it. that's ok. it can be part of my stack.

Use the "Export to CSV" (comma separated values) feature and then search the resulting file with your favorite text editor or word processor. Should do the trick.
I'm down to the last few pieces to complete my YPS collection:
3oz. Peace Sign, V2 100g Classic
Also any pieces with serial #17 & 18s. Please contact me if you have any of these for sale.

Thanks, this is useful. It exports 1 page at a time. 1200 messages are 18 pages. but it might just be worthwhile to export 18 times and combine them. I only need to do this once for all the history PMs I have so indeed I think this is a good way. ty.
