To search for production bates numbers in Logikcull, you first need to determine how production bates were generated before you run the search.

Universal Bates Search

Note: To search for any documents downloaded prior to April 4, 2018 please use the “Download Doc ID” field.

If the project was created after April 4, 2018, you may use the below syntax to search both database upload and download items for any control number (begin, internal, or end bates). In the advanced search builder, you can use the "Bates number" field. Example search syntax would be:


If the same Bates number exists in another upload/download within the same project, you may narrow the search further to a specific produced set. For example:

exports.download_name:VOLUME001 AND exports.bates:BATES00000001

From Logikcull Productions (exported from Logikcull)

If the Bates number you’re looking for was created when the document was produced/downloaded from Logikcull, you can use the “Download Doc ID” field in the advanced search builder. Example search syntax would be:


From Production Uploads (imported to Logikcull)

If the bates number was part of a database upload/production import, you can use the “beg_bates” field. Example search syntax would be:
Unified Bates Search:


By Filename

If the searches above don't yield results, you may also try searching for Bates numbers against the filename field or text content, depending on how they were loaded in the system. Example search syntax to search by the filename would be:


By Text


Combining metadata and text searches for Bates references

To search both the text and Bates metadata, you can combine syntax:

file_name:BATES_*0489 OR bates:BATES_*0489 OR text:BATES_*0489

Bates Ranges

With any of these options above (except text), you can also search for a Bates range!

bates:[BATES00000001 TO BATES00000010]

exports.download_doc_id:[BATES00001 TO BATES00000010]

beg_bates:[BATES00001 TO BATES00000010]

file_name:[BATES00000001 TO BATES00000010]

imported_fields.beg_bates:[PRODDOC00000001 TO PRODDOC00000002]

If you're still unable to locate the document, please don't hesitate to reach out to our support team via the in-app chat. You can also grant temporary access to the project and our team can take a closer look and provide suggestions.
