Enabling search in a custom Lists tool

Note: This article has done its job, and will be retiring soon. To prevent "Page not found" woes, we're removing links we know about. If you've created links to this page, please remove them, and together we'll keep the web connected.

You can enable search in a custom Lists tool so that Windows Search scans items and displays item titles in the Search Result window. You must also select a field in the form template design to be used for displaying item titles in the Search Result window.

Note: Search is enabled by default in Lists tools.

  1. Enter the Designer.

  2. Click Settings and Options.

  3. On the Settings tab, check Allow search.
