Hi,

I have a Document LIbrary with two custom columns that I have added: ClientID and Client Name. I would like these columns to be searchable. For example, if the ClientID is A3848 and i type 'A3848' into the search textbox and search the entire site then all documents with value A3848 in the ClientID column should be displayed in the search results.

Please note that I am using WSS, not MOSS.

Is this possible with WSS Can someone please steer me in the right direction

Thanks,
rdub

ok, im retarded, the new columns ARE searchable now...it just took a while for them to show up in the search results.

If you are an admin, you can modify the crawl intervals. I don't recall the specifics off-hand, but it is well documented. If you aren't an admin, I'm not aware of any way to force a crawl.
