I have a need to search an archive for a specific columnist for a specific newspaper for certain key words. I already know the website. How do I go about doing this and which MS software would I use to do this.
Thank you for your help.

Hello samiam4479 and welcome to BC

If the newspaper doesn't have a searchable data base just use Google or Yahoo and do a search for (columnist's name) + (newspaper name) + (keyword) without the brackets.

A little known fact: Ernest Hemingway worked as a reporter during WWII for the Toronto Star. So, if I wanted to search for his columns I would use Google and search for Hemingway + Toronto Star + War. You can vary the order of the name/name/keyword you use.
