Search in Calculated Fields?

  Asked By: Gopal    Date: Dec 01    Category: Sharepoint    Views: 1773

Is it possible to include Calculated Fields in a search? I want to
have a Unique ID in a Column and be able to search for that ID. It
seems that Sharepoint does not search the ID column or Calculated

Can anyone provide a suggestion or work around?

I found a way to add a form web part and search  a single list by the
ID number. It is just a better way of filtering on a list...

Does anyone know of a more elaborate way? I would love to be able to
include list Unique ID Numbers in a site search.

In ordinary us of Indexing, you have to "publish" custom properties to
the index server. I expect you have to do that is WSS, also. I haven't
gotten so far as to get a site going yet, but that is the direction you
should start looking.

Didn't find what you were looking for? Find more on Search in Calculated Fields? Or get search suggestion and latest updates.
