I am trying to use the "find" search functionality in the user interface.
I print a label with a barcode using a formula that combines a batch number and a product number. This creates a unique 8 digit code for each product.
When I do a search using this barcode, it does not find the formula.
If I create a text field and trigger on update script of text_barcode := Barcode then the search will return the result I want.
Do I need to make the barcode field into an something other than a formula to make it searchable?
The manual states search uses data fields, so it seems a formula is a no-go for "find". I just want to make sure I have this correct.
Your observation is right. Formula field is not searchable.
