I can do a plain search against a property "Skills" with one keyword. Like "Engineer" and search works. However, if I do a search "engineer and driller" then it doesn't bring anything? Am I doing something wrong and need additional configuration in order for this to work.

A person may have multiple skills and we need to able to search that person otherwise the search results too long for one keyword. I hope I am making sense.

How are you entering the multiple skills per person in the property? What syntax are you using for the search? – lwbecker2 Jul 21 '11 at 2:06
seperated by comma enclosed in double quote – lu A Jul 21 '11 at 5:29

I suggest you try:

Skills:engineer Skills:driller

If you only want both:

Skills:engineer AND Skills:driller
