I don't think Notes works that way, it designates a flat view because of Ranking/Scoring. Prabably you can write a script to search the database for the using document FTSearch method in the database and gather all the documents and put it in a search folder, In tha folder you can categroize the column of ur choice.

Here is an eg of it:

Dim session As New NotesSession
Dim db As NotesDatabase
Dim collection As NotesDocumentCollection
Set db = session.CurrentDatabase
Set collection = db.FTSearch( """printing press""", 0 _

Call collection.PutAllInFolder( "SearchFolder" )

Good Luck
