SP List not showing text in a column

New Contributor



I recently created an SP. Within the list, I created an index for a Student Name column (01.jpg) and re-indexed the list (02.jpg). But we still cannot find a student by their name using SP search box (03.jpg, 04.jpg).


Is there anything else I should have done?


Thank you

Hello @RUOAF 


it should also work without indexed columns. I have no index columns and the list search works find:



What type is your column?

Hi David,

Thank you for your quick response! The column type is single line of text.



hmm, it works fine and fast, created about a minute ago and my search can find it: 



Try to create a new column or search for another value.
