Search on Sharepoint not working for all data in multiple columns

Copper Contributor

We have simple data repository for 50 entries , the repository has standard multiline text column called Description and additional multiline column called KEY WORDS to capture unique words end entries to easily find repository records.


The problem we have is that the Sharepoint search only returns data from Description column not from the additional column . The additional column is multiline text entry to identify key words for search but Sharepoint search does not return any results when searching words from this field e.g. yellow see picture of a test entry

Hello @vendo233 


make sure that your column searchable:


1) make site columns:

2) you can map your column in your search admin center to an existing refinablestring or you can create a new managed property with the settings you like
