  3. Search Results:
    • When searching by NDC, at most one result will be listed.
      • If you are sure the NDC and the Dispense Date are correct and there are no matches, that means that this particular drug was not covered on that Dispense Date.
      • You may want to try a Keywords search when there are no matches using the NDC.
    • Results of searches based on Keywords will usually contain multiple rows.
      • The results most closely matching the search criteria will be displayed first in the list.
      • These results are limited to a maximum number of rows. When this occurs, you will be informed in the search results summary paragraph on how many rows were not included in the result set. It is advised that you add additional Keywords to reduce the number of matches.
