    How to Add a Field to Multi-Field Search

    In the GUI when I choose "multi field search" I get a list of fields. How can I add the option to search for "place" in multi field?

    To define the list of fields for a Find Multi-Field query, edit the pc_tab_sear.lng file. The FF lines define the multi field search, as the header states:
    FF - FIXED FIELD - For Multi-Field Search.

    First make sure you have a word index for Place:
    260## a 03 WPL

    Then, add the field to the FF line of XXX01/tab/pc_tab_sear.eng
    FF XXX01 L Place WPL
