Custom column filtering

Nov 4, 2009 at 10:57 AM

I have the search facet and 2 document libraries and I like it so far.

However I encountered a thing I couldn't find out. One of the document libraries has a custom column and I would like to offer filtering in the facet web part.

So I added a <Column Name="MyCustomColumn" /> in the xml file of the datasettings.

Now I just get an exclamation mark with object reference not set to an object. 

How to enable this behaviour?

Makes sure you have created Managed property and run Full crawl.

Great answer! I am entirely new to SharePoint so this is another step in my learning process
