The SharePoint Search Story ...........

This is the story of the columns (list columns/site columns) in SharePoint sites.
once the columns are created and added to the list with some values and search crawler , crawls these list items  , crawl properties are generated automatically in Search schema (Search service Application-->Search Schema -->in Crawl properties.)

Then we can perform search , by mapping it to managed properties  and configuring it in Search Web parts.

story is not completed yet.. it is just the beginning.. :)
