Search in MOSS2007 does not show any results only for my user for 5 days already

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

Hi, everyone,

Search works properly for another user, who is also administrator. And I am trying to figure out this mystery: I was added to the SharePoint team site a week ago, so far 5 days I am an administrator. Crawler should update at least on a daily basis, as far as I understand. Unfortunately, I am not an enterprise administrator, so I need to list possible causes of an issue and forward them to her, if it is her responsibility. The issue persists with all browsers and was experienced on different computers.

Any advice for further digging will be highly appreciated.

Best, Ivan

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?


Why does the Search Results show the wrong Title?

All my documents have the Title property set, yet when I perform a search, the result result is displaying the first word it finds in the documnet as the Title? For example I have many documents all with unique Titles, yet each of the results show "PROFILE" as the Title of the document because it is the first word in the document.....

documents didn't show up in search results


Hi all,

i'm facing the following problem with a moss 2007 server:

lets say i have a document library with about 20 xlsx and xls files. All are named similiar like "YZ travelexpensereport ...".

When i search for "the exact phrase" "YZ travelexpensereport" the search results only give me one result instead of all the other files.

When i use the "all of these words"-search i still find the same file -beside some other files. But still the other 19 documents didn't show off in the search results. It's always the same file that show off.

I checked the crawl logs and all of the 20 files were crawled successfully.

Now to the funny part: when i search any of the other 19 documents with the full filename i can find it - which seems logical since it is crawled successfully.

Any ideas are appreciated !

Search in SharePoint 2010 does not show results for all users other than the timer service account


I have setup a new SharePoint 2010 setup. Created Search Service application and configured. Confirmed that the crawl went fine without any error for both Local site and a file share. In the Search application i confirmed that the All Site scope shows 3890 items.

ISSUE: If any of the user [including site collection administrator] browses the site and try to search something it does NOT show result [No error either it says We did not find any results for .....]. All Site scopes does not show 3890 items but only 28.

But if the timer service account [system account] logs in the site and does the search it works fine.With this account loggd in if i check the All Site scopes i do see 3890 items.

This does seems to be some thing to do with the permission, but i am not able to get hint where the mistake is.

I have done the follow till now.

> I checked the application association is correct
> Created a new web application and confirmed that the issue exists there as well
> Checked ULS log but dont see any error related to this.
> No relavent event id in Application event viewer

Please help

created new user search doesn't return results


I created a new users by adding them to an AD group that is already in the site and has contribute access.  The user has the ability to login, add content, and everything the goes with contributing, but cannot search for content on the site.

The other users have no issue and when they search for something; for instance the location of something in the document library "new york" they receive results; however this user doesn't.  I also do not see the new user in the "All People" list.

How to search grid results based on user provided values?


I would like a user to be able to enter some criteria in a search box and then have them click on a search button to filter the data using a "contains" logic and not an exact match.

 Anyone know if this is possible?

I have downloaded the DynamicFilterRepeater and that works well, but you end up with one search box per colulmn...I would like to have one search box that columns could subscribe to and that would be filtered automatically.

Not sure how to go about doing something like that...I'm still quite new to DD and I am still trying to get a grasp on the basic stuff.

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!

Thank you for your help,





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.
