multiple DB search

Hi, I'd like to know if it is possible to perform the same search ( KWs defined) in a multiple DB section, in other words if it is possible to open more DB at the same time

Best regards

Searches in which you want to define specific fields to search (such as KWs)  are done one library at a time, however, if you want a general search, use "find citation" from Word's EndNote toolbar, as it searches all the open libraries, including the embedded the travelling library. 

This isn't so helpful if you want an author name such as "Li" which brings up far too many hits, though as it brings up any record with the "li" letter combination. 

This is the major reason I only use one large library for everything.
