Moss Simple Search not searching new items in list until keyword is "propertyName:Keyword" i.e Custo

Posted By:      Posted Date: May 22, 2011    Points: 0   Category :C#


Problem : Simple search not showing the new items created in list. It shows the new items if searched with keyword as  "propertyName:Keyword" i.e CustomeName:John

There is a metadata property "CustomerName", which is mapped to a custom column(Customer Name) in a sharepoint list as ows_CustomerName(Text). Also there is a scope(Customers) created which has folder set to URL of the sharepoint site containing this list.

The items are indexed for sure as they are searchable if simple search keyword is  "propertyName:Keyword" i.e CustomeName:"John Smith" . But not searchable if the keyword is John Smith

Is there anything missing??

MOSS Search Not Returning Results from A List

Hello All,   Problem: The MOSS Search is not returning results from a subsite (and list within it). It however returns results for most of the other sites in the web application. Environment: 2 Application Servers. One of these is the index and query server. The same server is also the search server for the content databases. 5 web front end servers. Other Notes: The MOSS installation has several web applications. We however have one site within it that is not returning the required results. The results that we are looking for are located in a particular list. When one searches against the items in the list, some appear and others do not. We also get results from RSS feeds that track changes to the list in the last week. Also, some of the results returned are links to the new item in the list (that is, when you click on new to create a new item). There are no search errors in the application log. The web application was recently upgraded from WSS 3.0 on a single server to MOSS 2007 in a server farm. There are no sql index errors. The WSS Search and Office Search Services are working and have been restarted. The credentials have also been re-entered. We get less than 20 errors in the crawl logs (out of close to 800k docs). I have checked the rights for the default content access account, and it has dbo rights to the content db and search db. It also has read (and now admin

SharePoint Search to Only Include List Items


Hi all,

Was wondering if anyone new a way to only include list items when searching. Currently search returns list items and lists that contain a keyword.

I know i will have to create a custom scope but not much after that.

Any help at all would be greatly appreciated.

Advanced Search does not show items from Custom List- why?



I have search working in general for site. However, when I run it only picks up files - not list items. Even List search in top right comes up with blank results.  

I read somewhere that this is switched off due to size of search results.

Can someone tell me how to include List Items in search?

MOSS 2007 This list or library contains a large number of items.


I have a library showing "This list or library contains a large number of items.".

The library contains only 1300 items.


1. Would the performance, e.g., upload files/change item properties, be affected?

2. Any way I can better organize the items?

3. I kown we can create folders in a library, how can I create subfolder? Or subfolder refers to Content Type?

4. Would create content type improves performance?


Many thanks.

If content approval is turned on, the Add Comment section displays a fairly ugly notification. Is there any way I can customize that section through e.g. CSS or SPDesigner?
