Quoting don Paolo Benvenuto <donpaolo at>:

>> * Refine current search -- This lets you search within the results of the

>> * Add results to current search -- this is an "OR" into the previous query
>>   so the results from the new set of criteria will get inserted into the
>>   results.
>> * Delete results from current search -- this is a NAND operation, so it
>>   will remove the results of the new criteria from the existing results.

Well, they should be greyed out the first time; they should be available
for sub-queries.  But it appears to be a bug in the "Find Transactions"
function that there's no way to initiate a sub-query.  So, yes, it's
a bug in that particular case.  But it works fine in the business cases.
