Tip: If you have a long list of attributes you can sort by ‘Data Type’ to quickly find your attributes of type ‘file’.

Check to see if Searchable is set to No.



If Searchable is set to No, highlight the attribute and click Edit.




Tick the Attribute may be searched box and click OK.

As the Warning text indicates.  The database will need to be reloaded in MI:Server Manager for the changes to take effect.



Please email support if you require further assistance.

If your problem relates to GRANTA MI please attach the MI:Viewer logs and MI:Server logs from the time the problem occurred (these are typically located in C:\inetpub\wwwroot\MI\logs and C:\Program Files\Granta\GRANTA MI\Server\Logs respectively).
