I want to search through the answers to my questions. How can I do this?

For example:

votes:10 is:answer questionBy:me

I searched meta for this already, and found a ton of questions about searching my own questions, but not about searching answers to my quesitons.

    Not what you're asking, but for future reference: to search in one specific question, one can use inquestion:19478 unicorn or inquestion:this unicorn, once one knows in which question to search.

    Does this answer your question? Search inside my own answers

  • @bad_coder This question is "the answers to my questions"; that one is "my own answers." They are not duplicates.

  • @RyanM you're right, my mistake (reading through the tag got to me this time.)

I wrote a Data Explorer query that does this. You can search the body of answers given to your questions. As the data explorer gets updated weekly, this is a workable solution till advanced search gets an update (if).

It can also handle upper and lower limits for vote count of answers.

Update :

Now also handles accepted status of answers!

Update #2:

Now question tags can also be searched!

Update #3:

Search within your answers to your questions! (that is, self answers or self-answered questions)
