Monday, May 07, 2012 2:30 PMI am trying to put together a lookup against a document library that has many sub folders. The catch is I would like to include three fields (contains or islike logic) where a user could filter the results? Any thoughts on how this could best be achieved?

Do you mean that you want to search a document library with a lot a subfolders and use contains ,is like logic in search ?
As far as I know ,the Advanced Search web part have these contains ,not equals logic .You can use the Advanced search web part to have a test .But the advanced search web part doesn’t have a search scope .Or you need to create your own search box with the logic .
For more information about create a search control ,you can refer to this site:

I am on SP 2010 and I am not a developer and unfortunately am lacking time, so while I could figure out the above recommendation, it would probably take me quite some time to work through it. :(
In summary, I was charged to develop a document sharing website. Users will be uploading documents or links to their own website where those documents reside.
I have a content type that has defined types of documents. In this document library I am allowing both content types of documents, my custom CT, and links. So I have one view (document library) to where I am trying to set up a cascading filter that would allow a user to first filter on Region (or multiple regions) / then on sub region (or multiple subregions), then on content type (which is a choice).
Two lists exists that feed the site columns used in the doc library: Region / Sub Region (with a region code that connects the two lists). I am thinking that I would be able to develop an InfoPath form with cascading boxes that tie to these two lists then send that as a parameter value to a document library webpart? Is this possible?
