The MATCHALL field specifier (case sensitive) allows you to find documents in which a specified field occurs in multiple instances, and in which there is at least one match among those instances for each of a set of strings that you specify.


You can optimize the field specifier speed by restricting the field to the MatchType property type.

To use the MATCHALL field specifier against fields that were added using the DREREPLACE index action, you must define the fields as MatchType.



One or more strings. A document is returned only if all these strings have exact matches among the instances of yourField. The matching is case-independent. You can match strings that contain punctuation (but see Note below) or consist of several words.


To distinguish query syntax punctuation from punctuation within strings, double-percent-encode commas and curly braces within strings. Query syntax punctuation must be left unencoded. There must be no space before or after a separator comma.

yourField The name of the field to match against. A document returns only if it contains the field and only if all yourStrings are matched at least once in various instances of the field.



The DIRECTORY fields must include at least the values Archive and Web and docs for the document to return as a result.


The values Smith, Garcia, and Lee must all have matches in the SURNAME fields for the document to return as a result.

FieldText=MATCHALL{Smith%2C John, Garcia%2C Joaquin}:FULLNAME

The values Smith, John and Garcia, Joaquin must both have matches in the FULLNAME fields for the document to return as a result.
