How to Force Index of File Attachment Field for Advanced Search?

How to Force Index of File Attachment Field for Advanced Search? Can't See <Some Attached File> Option

Hi Folks,

The availability of the advanced search option <Some Attached File> seems random. Has anyone pinpointed how this works?

I need to search within file attachments stored in a single QB table and have tried without success:

Loading a single ocr pdf, setting the "Include this field when searching/filtering this table" option, then waiting 24 hours for indexing. No search option for "<Some Attached File>".

Creating the file attachment field and setting the "Include this field when searching/filtering this table" BEFORE adding files. Then adding files and waiting 24 hours+ for indexing, but no search option for "<Some Attached File>".

Removing other file attachment fields in the table. No change.

One table has the search option for some reason, but I can't get the option to appear on any other table.

 

Thanks!

    Key is to check the index file attachments button on the table specific advanced settings AND the file attachment field.

    Field Settings:

    I had the correct search option for indexed documents within 15 minutes of checking both boxes for my target table.
