Search query returning 0 results

Posted By:      Posted Date: August 31, 2010    Points: 0   Category :SharePoint
I'm using a query which returns 0 results but was working some weeks ago.  I checked the code and nothing has changed since then.  I created a Search Center Site on another port and using the same terms I get many results there.  I checked my scopes and they are all right. Nothing changed there either. Could someone help me figure out what may be the problem in my query.  Or maybe it's my Scopes/Content Sources configuration. SELECT URL, FileName, Title, Description, Rank, Size, HitHighlightedSummary, Path FROM SCOPE() WHERE freetext(defaultproperties, ' +légumes')  AND ( "scope" = 'Scope - My Portal - All Site - fr'  )    ORDER BY Rank DESCDaniel Siconnelli There is neither good nor evil... only mogwais and gremlins

SharePoint Server 2010 Search - not returning results but crawling without errors

I have created a Search Service Application on a SharePoint Server 2010 (RTM) Farm and used the default Content Source. I started a Full Crawl and it suceeded with no errors etc. I ran it a few times and no issues. But if I go to the Intranet Portal Web Appliaction and do a search for a document that would have been crawled it does not show up in search results...nothing does. I am not getting any errors in Event Log or ULS Logs relevant to Search. How can I troubleshoot this problem further?SharePoint Solution Architect, Perth Australia - Microsoft Virtual Technology Specialist - MCTS WSS Dev, WSS Adm, MOSS Dev, MOSS Adm - http://wss.made4the.net/ - Founder of http://www.sharepointdevwiki.com/

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

How to hide "No results are available. Either no query is specified..." in Core Search Results webpa

Hi All, by default core search results webpart displays this message "No results are available. Either no query is specified, or the query came from advanced search (Federated Webparts do not support Advanced Search queries)." till you perform your first search. So, how can i hide this message when page loaded ? Thanks,

Why is SharePoint people search returning the same results as all sites search?


I've been having issues with the people search in that it doesn't return any results and the scope is 0.

I deleted the scope and recreated it adding the rule contentclass = urn:content-class:SPSPeople with behaviour : require but now when i search for people it seems to search everything not just people profiles. Please can someone tell me what I have done wrong when I recreated the scope? The scope still cant crawl the profiles but I'd like to at least get back to where i was before!!


Small Search Box Returning No Results




The small search box on the top page of the site returns no results, but when I do the same query in a search page, I get the expected number of results (more than zero).  I've poked around in the search settings on Central Administration, but I can't seem to find anything.  Has anyone run in to anything like this before?  Thanks!


SharePoint Search Not Returning Results

My SharePoint search is not returning results for anything but people. I'm not seeing any errors in the ULS log and my index contains rough 27,000 documents. What could be the problem? Where can I look for details that could shed some light on why there are no results being returned?

Search is currently configured not to return more than 50 results for any query. You asked for resul

Customisation of look and feel using XSLT.

"Search is currently configured not to return more than 50 results for any query. You asked for results starting from 51"

I shouldnt show next symbol @ 5th page ...how can i overcome this issue.



Odd search results when using spaces in the query


Hello all,

I have a client that is using SharePoint 2007 and experiencing issue with searching on a document with spaces in the query.  So for example they search on QA 252.  They get one hit back but it isn't the document they are after.  If the remove the space, they get the hits they need.  I am just wondering what the difference is between executing the search with a space int he query vs not having the space?  We can educate the usetr to not use spaces but shouldn't the search pickup the metadata?  When we go to an adnvaced search, the same issues apply.

Any thoughts?






search not returning correct results


On my sharepoint, when I enter in bayliners in my search it returns me nothing related to bayliner boats, but when I enter in bayliner it returns me everything bayliner related, how can I get my search to return data for bayliner even though the user entered in bayliners in the search box?

My search results page is using an XSL file to show the data

MS SQL Server: Search All Tables, Columns & Rows For Data or Keyword Query

If you need to search your entire database for specific data, this query will come in handy.

So when a client needs a custom report or some sort of custom development using Great Plains, most of the time I will have to track down the data in the system by running this query and find the table(s) it is in.

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!

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=

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?
