I have another question. How can I do that using administration panel? – MIlena Dec 3 '12 at 11:05
administration panel? did you mean Central Admin ? go to search service app, on left navgation panel, click "managed properties", click "crawled properties" and type your column name then click search, make sure your column is not mapped to any Managed Properties and not include in index – Eric Dec 5 '12 at 7:51
