Exclude Words from Advanced Search

Currently, when doing an advanced search you can search for:
"Any of these words" OR
"All of these words"
What we would like to have is an option to exclude some words during a search, see screenshot attached. An option would be to add a field with a drop down list of search options and the free type field to add the words.  Similar to the Search by user fields.
E.g. the drop down could include the options:
"Any of these words"
"All of these words"
"Exclude these words" or "None of these words"

    Hi Nehal,

    Thanks for the suggestion. This request has come up before so we have been tracking it as a future enhancement, but don't have a specific time-frame to share with you. We agree that it would be a useful search tool so I would anticipate seeing it in Vault at some point.

    UCB has requested this before as well, but I'm not sure if our vote has been formally recorded. Plus one!
