Multiple Field Search

Multiple Field Search

I have a search form that only has 1 Form Field (ProductSearch) and I want the end user to be able to search either the name of the product (ProductName) or the product SKU (ProductSKU) using the same Form.
Here is now I have it on my results page but it's not working.

$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("ProductSearch","ProductName","AND","Includes",0);
$WADbSearch1->addComparisonFromEdit("ProductSearch","ProductSKU","OR","Includes",0);

Any help would be appreciated.

Use only one criteria.

Set it to a key word search type, and select both the Name and SKU Fields as the columns to search

I tried that it still doesn't work. Here are the values created.

//keyword array declarations
$KeyArr1 = array("ProductName");
$KeyArr2 = array("ProductSKU");

//comparison list additions
$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr1,"ProductSearch","AND","Includes","%20AND%20","%20OR%20","%22","%22",0);
$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr2,"ProductSearch","OR","Includes",",%20","%20","%22","%22",0);

you are still using 2 criteria, not one.

you only need to use 1 criteria, and delete the second.

In the one criteria, Select both the Name and SKU Columns. The column select list when setting the criteria, is a multiple select list, it allows you to select multiple columns.

I'm not following you exactly. Is the criteria you're referring to the Search Form Value of the Database Field. I think this is what you're trying to say but I'm not sure.

//keyword array declarations
$KeyArr1 = array("ProductName");
$KeyArr2 = array("ProductSKU");

//comparison list additions
$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr1,"ProductSearch","AND","Includes","%20AND%20","%20OR%20","%22","%22",0);
$WADbSearch1->keywordComparison($KeyArr2,"","OR","Includes",",%20","%20","%22","%22",0);

Stop looking at the code. Go into the DataAssist Search server behavior.

You will see that there are 2 search criteria defined in the first screen.

you only need one, but set it to search both database columns

Instead of using one criteria to search one column and another criteria to search the second column, use one criteria to search both columns.

Here is a screen shot. If I understand you correctly. When you say criteria you mean the Column. This configuration still isn't working.

Here is a bigger image.
ProductSKU and ProductName are selected in the Column fields.

This screen shot shows you editing one of the Criteria, this shows the settings for one of the 2 criteria that are applied.

When click finish on this screen shot, it show a listing of each criteria applied, and allow yo to select each one to edit it.

Screen Shot One.
You can see I have ProductSKU and ProductName selected in the Column with the Type set to Keyword and Value set to ProductSearch which is the name of my Search Field on the search page.

See next post please.
