Unable to use Multi Choice Column in advance search

Hi All,

I have a list with a Multichoice colum. Here i can select only 1 option out of given 4. Example column name is Colour with option Red, Blue, Green, Pink.

I have created a Metadata property named Color and Mapping as "ows_colour(text)"

Now I tried to add it to Advance search > Web Part properties > Properties > Properties .. tag :
<PropertyDef Name="Colour" DataType="Text" DisplayName="Colour"/>  

But I dont see any result for this Colours Metadata. I tried to use it for scope and it worked fine. but I want to use it for Advance search.

Regards

Hello,

Multi-choice columns are excluded from many SharePoint features, like filters for LVWP or DVWP, sort, etc. so it does not really surprise me that they don't work in the scenario you're describing. The way that multi-choice fields are stored makes it really hard to parse them.

Sorry, not a suggestion, just some words of sympathy.

cheers,  teylyn
