When I search the dbSNP database for “microsatellite” with Limits of coding nonsynonymous and Homo sapiens, none of the records I retrieve contains the term “microsatellite”. Why?

Unless you specify the correct field tag, every field is searched, and every SNP record that has the word “microsatellite” anywhere in it will be returned. If you search using “microsat”[SNPCLASS] without limits set, you should retrieve 4954 records. You can use the Preview/Index option to get the correct field and value.
