  • There is no error message the built in search simply does not search the autocomplete fields.    look at the screen shots the checkbox for searchable is not even an option.   First screen shot is a searchable field and the second is the autocomplete box.

  • it appears my screen shots did not post in any case the autocomplete box is not a searchable item so do I need to code a custom search?

  • after spending several hours on this I figured out I have to create my own search query but now I am left with another issue.

    I cannot get my parameter for the search to appear where I want it.    Such as in the command bar or on the top of the screen above everything else.

    second I cannot get rid of the "default" search box the does not work.
