Searching in more than one folder

Hi, I need to filter for a note in one of two notebooks.

It appears that I can only filter in one notebook at a time or all notebooks at once, yet when filtering tags I can select these as needed.

Am I missing something here?

Maybe I need to Upgrade from version 10 to version 6 to get this type of cutting edge capability?

Appreciated

I think you would need to use the advanced search syntax in whatever version you used. If the two notebooks are called nb1 and nb2 then you need

any: notebook:nb1 notebook:nb2

Correction   Notebooks are excluded from the any: parameter

Documentation at https://help.evernote.com/hc/en-us/articles/208313828

Since notebooks have exclusive relationships with notes, at most one notebook can be provided for the search. 
The notebook is not included in the "union" created by the "any:" operator

edit; I work on a Mac with the Legacy version

Sorry but that is not my experience in V10. If I omit the any: I get

No notes found as no notes can be in more than one notebook

If I include any: I get

Which is the correct number of notes for the two notebooks specified

Ok thanks.

So, lets say I have 3 notebooks...

nb1 and nb2 and nb3

and one tag called tag1

I would like to search for tag 1 in nb1 or nb2, but not nb3.............can I do this please?  If so how?

I've tried.....

tag:tag1 any: notebook:nb1 notebook:nb2

any: notebook:nb1 notebook:nb2 tag:tag1

The first of your options works for me on V10 (Windows 10.10.5 and the Web) but not in legacy. I notice that in your example you mention both "tag1" and "tag 1" although I'm sure it is just a typo.

Searching for all my notes containing the tag .TestTag

tag: .TestTag

Using the search

tag:.TestTag any: notebook:@inbox notebook:testExport
