What should I do if pointer files profiled in Adlib 6.6.0 or 7 (also via SDI) no longer yield the correct results?

From Adlib 6.6.0 build 557, the possibilities for using + and - in search statements in the expert search language have changed. If you literally search on a + or - within a word or when you use + or - as a mathematical operator in combination with the system variable today to search on a relative date, then the value on which you search must be enclosed by (double) quotes from now on. If the value is not enclosed by quotes, then - or + will be translated to AND NOT and respectively AND. This may have consequences for your existing pointer files and any SDI profiles based on those pointer files. In the attached document you'll find more information about this.
