Advanced Search setup


Could you please help me to implement following.

I have library which contains few choice columns.

I want to make documents search in this library, and have ability specify these columns:

e.g. I have column called "Area", which is the choice column.

In advanced search web part I've added following, but it seems that it doesn't work.

<PropertyDef Name="Area" DataType="integer" DisplayName="Area"/>

Have you defined the columns as Managed properties? Until you've done that they won't be available for your to search against.
