    Set engine= Server.CreateObject("MnoGoSearch.GoSearch")
    engine.DBAddr= "Oracle://system:manager@/MyOracleDSN/"
    engine.DBMode= "single"
    engine.SetPageNumber(0)       ' get first results page
    engine.SetPageSize(50)        ' we don't want more than 50 documents on page
    engine.SetMatch("all")        ' only documents having all the query wors
    engine.AddTagLimit("AA")	  ' only search AA category of sites

    Set result= engine.Find("my wife")  ' launch searching for words "my" and "wife"

    if result.Valid then
        if result.Count = 0 then
            Response.Write("Your wife is not in Internet!")
            Response.Write("I found your wife in " + Result.Count + " places.")
            Response.Write("Here are " + Result.LastDoc - Result.FirstDoc + " of them:")
            last= result.LastDoc
            for i=result.FirstDoc to last
                Set line= result(i)
