Not sure why you're getting the zero "relevance" results - our catalog
gives the same numbers regardless of the sort.
According to the manual, "near" is supposed to "retrieve records that
contain the specified words or phrases within ten words of each other in
the same indexed field." After looking in our catalog and a couple
others, it's clear this is not even close to being accurate. The words
do not need to be in the same indexed field, nor do they need to be
within ten words of each other. "Near" searches yield fewer hits than
"and" searches, if not very many fewer, but I can't figure out what the
criteria for the different results are.
So... there's a bit more information for you, but I'm afraid the light
I'm shedding on your questions isn't really what you're looking for.

We just completed (last Friday) the install of AKS and have since
discovered some interesting things.
When I do an advanced search using "wom?n" as the search term and
as the sort term I get 11,197 hits. When I change the sort to
get zero hits. Why?
When I search for "church near school" I get hits that have the word
"church" in a tag 110 field and "school" in a 500 tag. The "near" to
appears to be a bit "to far" away. Why does it think it is near?
Those who have gone through this before please enlighten me.
