Running a Query Against Fields That an MLOV Controls
To perform a search, Siebel CRM applies the following function to the language-independent code:
LookupValue (LOV Type, Language-Independent Code)
You can use this function to configure search with a predefined query and search expression.
For more information about the LookupValue function, see Guidelines for Using Code in an MLOV Configuration. For more information, see Guidelines for Modifying a Predefined Query.
For more information about query operators and expressions, see Siebel Developer's Reference and Siebel Fundamentals.
To run queries against fields that an MLOV controls
- Use the display value for the search specification.
Do not use the language-independent code to query. A query translates the search specification to the appropriate language-independent code. For more information, see Options to Filter Data Displayed in an Applet.
- Make sure the Display Value you use as the search specification corresponds to the language that Siebel CRM uses to perform the query.
If the query runs through a Siebel interface, such as COM, then the language that Siebel CRM uses for this translation is configured in the configuration file that Siebel CRM uses with the interface.
