I wish we could search our transaction archive..I'm assuming we can't since I haven't been able to figure it out :-( I have a TON of books I've received and quite af ew I've sent and I'd like to be able to search then see who I sent to or ordered from, esp with series. It's a lot better now that it'll tell you when you click on the description if it's on your rl, wl or transaction archive but doesnt' help in finding w hen you got it or from whom...

I search my transaction archive all the time, so I am not sure why you can't.  I simply click on Transaction Archive and it shows all my transactions, including the name of the book and who I got it from/sent it to.   Unless you mean you wish there was a search feature for the Transaction Archive so you can zero in on a particular book without having to scroll down through the whole thing looking for one book?

Yeah, an actual Search is what would be nice.

I've had several cases I wanted to find a book in my transaction archive for one reason or another.  It wasn't a very recent book, though--and I usually gave up because it was too much work to find it.

I use the search feature on my browser (Ctrl-F) when I'm looking for something particular, so I don't have to read every title -- I can just put a title word or author name in the search and it will quickly browse each page.  It isn't ideal, but its better than reading through a thousand entries :-)
