What's your search string?
When is the index updated last? See the Database Properties, FT-index tab (one but last).

Try to reindex, or remove the index and create it again.

Please answer these questions:
- What's your search string?
- Can you give an example of a document that's not found but should have been?

When you do the FT search, is that on the same server/replica/view and by the same user as where you established your expectations? (just to rule out wong database, different selection formulas, readernames issues etc.)

More likely:
Could the issue be related to fragments of words (not whole words) that you'd expect to appear? If so, try using the * wildcharacter.

e.g:
{ FIELD myField CONTAINS "A" } would return docs where the field values equals "A"
{ FIELD myField CONTAINS "A*" } would return docs where the field starts with "A"
{ FIELD myField CONTAINS "*A" } would return docs where the field ends with "A"
{ FIELD myField CONTAINS "*A*" } would return docs that actually contain an "A" at no specific position

This applies to non field specific searches as well:
"A", "A*", "*A" and "*A*" will return different results

Why You Should Analyze Threat Actor TTPs

After years of analyzing threat actor behavior, it’s become clear that at any given time there are specific tactics, techniques, and procedures (TTPs) that are particularly prevalent. By analyzing and understanding these TTPs, you can dramatically enhance your security program.

Sjef it did work like this although it took 3 attempts at it before it finally recreated the index, also had to make a different selection---untick encrypted files

  thanks

Hey thanks!

It is "normal" that the FT-index is refreshed periodically, because it takes quite some processing to update the index. In LotusScript, you can force the update of the FT-index.

Well, that was indeed the most logical thing to check first!
