Search multiple fields

Multiple Field Search


I have used Data Assist Wizard to create the Results and Search pages. I have added about 15 fields to the Users Registration Profile, which makes up my primary database. These fields have been included in the Search page. I would now like to simplify the Search page by combining fields; that is, use one input search field to search in multiple columns in my database. In this example, I created a new input search field named S_Categories2, which I would like to query three fields: Category1, Category2, and Category 3. The coding for the Category1-2-3 search for the results page is below. The search page is in a following thread. (Eventually I would like also to have a key word search on all of the fields. )

My searches work fine using the fields created by the wizard. The search even works when I change from Edit mode to Value mode, and create a "Yes" filter on one of my fields. I receive a blank result, however, when I add the last key word query of Category1, 2 and 3.

I still wonder whether I should be binding the new filed somewhere, but I cannot seem to find anywhere to do this.

Thanks for you help.
