Abstract
Examines the RANK command on DIALOG using a statistical analysis of articles in DATABASE as an example. The RANK command was used to find authors, company names, and length of articles. Use of the command revealed a number of complexities and revealed some problematic indexing on the part of the database producers. The LEXIS-NEXIS RANK command was also used, but this fulfils a different function to the command of the same name in DIALOG
