Hi ,

Just how much can I pick your brains regarding the Quest web parts?

To give you some background, the Quest web parts (as I know them) were simply loaded on to our Sharepoint site with no explanation on how or when to use them. Because of that we have not used them on our sites, although through experimentation we can see their potential. A search for decent training material has come up empty! Your forum is probably the most useful site I’ve found regarding solutions to problems.

Can you suggest where I might be able to find some comprehensive CBT?

Also, further to my original query, by using ezEdit to customize the search operators, it seems that if you select a default or fixed operator, you must them also specify a default value. What I am trying to achieve is to allow the user to select either one of three search fields, two of three or three of three, each set at ‘Equals’. If no default value is specified, then the field says ‘-Select One-‘ at the top of the dropdown. However, when you click ‘Go’, the search looks at the values in all three fields. It cannot find any values with ‘-Select one-‘ so the search returns no records.

E.g. Search fields for ‘Country’, ‘Company’ or ’Skill’ with Fixed operator set to ‘Equals’.

If I wanted to search all companies in the USA to find out what skills are available, I would search thus:

Country: USA Company: -Select one- Skill: -Select one-

If I wanted to search a specific company in the USA to find out what skills are available, I would search thus:

Country: USA Company: Company A Skill: -Select one-

And if I want to search for ‘Project Management’ as a skill in a specific company in the USA, I would search thus:

Country: USA Company: Company A Skill: Project Management

The first two searches would return no results, as –Select one- does not exist in the Company or Skills column.

Only the third search works because all fields specify a value found in the columns.

How can I search only one or two fields or columns and still get results?

Sorry if the above is a little long winded. Also, if this needs to be posted via the forum, I am happy to move it there.

Best regards

John Arthur
