The default query operator to use to separate terms that you specify in the query.

This option allows you to change the weighting used in queries (for example by using a WNEAR operator or the OR operator), or to use additional restrictions (for example, by using the AND operator).

You can use any of the query Boolean or proximity operators as the DefaultQueryOperator, except for NOT. For the list of operators, see Boolean and Proximity Search.
