You need two extra fields on your $$Searchtemplate Form.
1.) Query_String
2.) SearchString

The name of Query_String Field has to be so. This is a CGI field name.
The formula for your SearchString Field is then:
FIELD Query_String:=Query_String;

Good luck,

Hello Steamer,

did you try this:
1.) On your Search form or the $$Search form is there a field with the name: Query
2.) Simply repeat this field "Query" on your $$Searchtemplate Form.

Good luck,
