No results in Advanced Search for Boolean Property = Is True

Posted By:      Posted Date: December 04, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint

Hi there,

I have had some success with setting Advanced Search Property Restrictions.

However, when I define a Boolean Yes/No property, I get the correct results for Is False, but NO results for Is True.

If I Google the issue I find others with similar issues, but no solutions.

I've created a new Advanced Search Site with no improvement.

Can anyone suggest a solution?

Thank you, in advance.

Ta, Ian Hearnes

How to add advanced search and results to the site?

I have a site with advanced search Box webpart. I would like to results to open to the same site with the search webpart. Not in the search center. I tried to add Search Core Results, but said results are available. Either no query is specified, or the query came from advanced search (Federated Webparts do not support Advanced Search queries).   How to do? Kenny_I

People Search Results - Where do property/headings in the core results web part come from?

Hi there, I'm hoping this will be a nice simple thing to fix! We're running SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, using the Enterprise Search. In my User Profiles Service Application, I changed the display name of one of the User Properties. It it the SPS-Responsibility property. The out of the box display name is Ask Me About. The only issue is that in the people search results, the SPS-Responsibilty display name still shows as Ask Me About, not my new display name. This link shows this in a screenshot  I've tried various things such as resetting the index, running full crawls again etc. Could anyone let me know where this text is coming from? Thanks! Al

Sorting search results by custom managed property


I am customizing the XSLT for the core results webpart to give the user the option to sort search results by a certain managed property. There are several managed properties that I am listing on the search results page, and when the user clicks one, it should sort the results by that property.

In MOSS 2007, you could use the "v=property" parameter in the URL to define the sort order, but this doesn't seem to work anymore in SharePoint 2010. Are there any ideas on how to accomplish this?

Search by file Name in advanced search does not return any results

Hi there ,when i search by file name it doesn't return any results . search by other columns return result.

Advanced Search doesn't page results 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 Next >


The Advanced Search does return results for my searches, it is located at http://mosslab01/SearchCenter/Pages/Advanced.aspx, when I click search I am taken to the results page: http://mosslab01/_layouts/osssearchresults.aspx

it says Results 1-10 of about 443,904. Your search took 1.05 seconds.  

However, I don't see any parameters in the URL regarding my search keywords, and the paging just appends '?start1=11', '?start1=21', '?start1=31', '?start1=41', when I click 2, 3, 4, 5, respectively, hence the newly formed URL looks like this http://mosslab01/_layouts/osssearchresults.aspx?start1=11 and the page displayed is blank in the search results area.

Previously the results page was set to http://mosslab01/SearchCenter/Pages/results.aspx but whenever a search using "This Site: Site01" was performed no result was returned




FS4SP Search Results are not displaying crawled property value from BCS data.


I have BCS data and one of the columns contains URL paths. I want to make the search results title a hyperlink utilizing the URL from the BCS. 

I have mapped my BCS crawled property to the managed property, Path.

Property Name:  voyager_contentRead ListElement.URL
Category: Business Data
Property Set ID: 2edeba9a-0fa8-4020-8a8b-30c3cdf34ccd
Variant Type: 31
Data Type: Text
Multi-valued: No


This crawled property is mapped to the following managed properties: Path(Text)


How to display a count of search results with keywords in a label?


Sorry for a basic post here; I am very new to VB!

I am currently building a search page, which includes a textbox and two drop-down lists, a search button, and a datagrid. If results are found and displayed, I would like a label to display:

(e.g.) "24 results found for 'blue sky clouds' "

...where the integer represents the results count, and the keywords and/or drop-down list selections are included in the string.

If no results are found I would like the label to display:

(e.g.) "No results were found that match your selection. Please try again"

I would also like the label to be invisible until a search occurs.

Thanks in advance!

SharePoint Security: Trim SharePoint Search Results for Better Security


SharePoint search may return too much information, causing data security problems. Learn how to use the custom security trimmer to ensure users see only the documents they have permission to view.

How can I prioritise search results to show where document metadata has a hit first and then where t


When my users run a search against a site with a bunch of document libraries they will often search for terms that are in the title of the doc, if they do know the title they will put that in. What I would like to do is have the results ordered such that if any hits are on the document metadata (eg Title) then they are presented first and any results that are from hits on the content of the documents are presented later.

So, if they get the title spot on in their search query that document will appear first .... if they don't get it right then the likelyhood is that the title is something like what they entered so similar titled docs are presented first and then those with matching content ....

How can I achieve this?


No Results matching your search were found. WSS 3.0


I've got one sharepoint 3.0 site, which is a hostNamedSiteCollection which won't return any results when we search it - searching the entire site or a single list both produce the same "no results matching your search were found".
The site uses Windows Authentication.  We have no Alternate Access Mappings set up. It is regular HTTP
I've added test content to other sites housed in the same Web Application and searched - that new data is appearing in the results.
I did a backup using STSADM and restored the site to my dev server (as both a hostNamedSiteCollection & a regular site collection) - searches return results just fine.
I deleted the site from the prod server and restored it (into a different content database even!) from a backup  I made with STSADM - no results are returned.
I restored the site to the same web application as a Standard site (http://webapp/sites/sitename) (NOT a host named site collection) and results ARE returned.

I've looked at the trace logs & application logs on the server, but can't find any errors that I can tell might be related..

This is the only site I've ever seen have this problem.  We have plenty of other hostNamedSiteCollections and search is working fine on them.

FAST Search for SP2010 scope setting works but not getting results.



I am trying this from last two days , but it does not work. I have created two scopes for FAST Search Query SSA , they appear in search center , but I am not getting any results back. I see them being fired in the FAST query log.

First one is a simple one:

New-SPEnterpriseSearchQueryScope -SearchApplication "FAST Query SSA" -Name DCO -Description "All DCO Documents" -DisplayInAdminUI 1 -ExtendedSearchFilter "ContentSource:DCO"

Content source is a managed property. and i can just query "contentsource:dco" from the text box which gives me results.

When I fire the query i see it in FAST Search query log

"GET /cgi-bin/search?qtf_keyword:context=ssgid%3a%3a4d020606-8532-45d8-b09a-db11283cccb4%7cSPS-Location%3a%3a%7cSPS-Responsibility%3a%2c%3a%7c&rpf_navigation:hits=50&rpf_navigation:enabled=True&spell=suggest&qtf_parsekw:timezone=10&type=kwall&qtf_teaser:dynlength=185&resubmitflags=8192&language=en&query=CASHIERING&sortby=%2bdefault&qtf_lemmatize=True&offset=0&version=

Advanced Search page no found



Currently when a user attempts to conduct an advance search they recieve a page not found message. When I tried to conduct a search myself I was able to enter in my search term, but the search results came up as page not found. On closer inpection I noticed that it is droping part of the URL.


http://sitesp.ca/sites/PETL-EPFT/searchcenter/Pages/Advanced.aspx becomes http://sitesp.ca/sites/PETL/searchcenter/Pages/Advanced.aspx

Has anyone seen this before? Any help would be greatly appreaciated.


Excel file not showing in search results

We have a strange issue. I have one Excel document (or at least one that I am aware of) that will not show up in search results for content within the document. I can find the document by title just fine, but when I search for words within the document I do not see it. The document was originally a 2003 Excel document and was recently converted to 2007. Other than that there isn't really anything unusual about it (some formatting stuff, but mainly just background colors and whatnot, nothing fancy). The crawl log shows the document was crawled without error. Anyone know anything else I can check on?

Customizing Search Results page in MOSS



The Search Results page in MOSS seems to list the results as links by default. My customer asked me if I could customize the search results so that they show in a data view web part. Is this possible?



QueryEx (Search) results and Custom Page Index


Hi All,

I done a web part which allow the user to query the search.asmx. It return the result fine against which I apply some xslt. However I need a mean to create a Page index. I only return the result based on a range defined in the query.

I need somehow to obtain the number of result the search is returning in total against what I only want to display on the screen.

The only way I sort of figure to do that is by first make a search just to obtain the number of result it will return in total and then make a search defining a range.

Has someone done something similar?
