    If I want to search for a phrase NOT just the individual words how do I enter my requirements? e.g.

    Only required "goto cell" NOT "cell" or "goto" on their own; just the complete phrase.

    Any help please

    You do just like you did there: you put quotes around the phrase you want to search for.

    Alternatively, if you wanted to include things like 'goto the lefthand cell' you can put +goto +cell which means every entry has to have both words. Likewise, you can exclude words with a minus (-) sign.

    I think Google tried to replace this syntax with something else about a year back, but it still seems to work.
