I have some problems with FQL queries: I want to select data from some BDC indexed with Search.

This is my query: or(myField:"240",myField:"300")

myfield is a custom property created on Search Server. myField always equals to "240 300 270", but no result appear with this Query... any Idea?

Are you able to view the item by querying a different field's value? You might want to validate the item has been indexed. – Kit Menke Jun 15 '11 at 15:33

You cannot use FQL (FAST Query Language) with Search Server Express 2010 or even the SharePoint Search Service Application. It can only be used with FAST.

Hum ok, I'll try to use SQL instead of FQL! Thank you! – ppmax Jun 16 '11 at 6:46
By the way, FAST Server is the commercial version of Search Server Express? – ppmax Jun 16 '11 at 7:24
No. You have Search Server Express (free). Then you have Microsoft SharePoint Server with standard SP search and then you have FAST for SharePoint. – Wictor Wilen MCA MCM MVP Jun 16 '11 at 9:11
ok thanks you ! – ppmax Jun 16 '11 at 9:40
