Hi @baldj 

In SharePoint Online, by default, the search box is not available in the view of a list for Lookup or Date columns. However, you can use the "Filter" web part to add a search box for these column types. Here's how:

  1. Create a view of the list that includes the Lookup or Date column you want to filter.
  2. Edit the view and add a "Filter" web part.
  3. In the "Filter" web part, select the Lookup or Date column from the drop-down list.
  4. Set the "Filter type" to "Contains" or "Starts with".
  5. Save and publish the view.

Now, a search box will be available in the view of the list for the selected Lookup or Date column, allowing users to filter the list based on the column values.

Thank you, but it is for all users and they make continuous queries. This is not good solucion for me problem.
