Trying to find all files that contain “1ld” but this returns nothing when I add the contains line
What obvious thing am I doing wrong?
table maintain as Task
FROM #Journal and -"zzzTemplates"
WHERE date(tomorrow) - file.ctime <= dur(100 days)
and contains(file, "1ld") = true
sort file.name desc
What’s “file”? Any created field? Or an implicit field like “file.name”, “file.link”, …?
What’s “1ld”? A value in a field called “file”? Or a content inside any file?
For now dataview works only with metadata, not content (except for “tasks”, where content is considered as field
So no way to dataview for all files that contain a certain string
If that string isn’t inside a specific field, no.
For example, if you use an inline field like “summary::” for literature notes you can filter to a specific word or string inside your summary content. Without the “key” for field you can’t (for now - it’s on dev roadmap).
By “file” do you mean an attached file? You cannot search those
But you can search the contents of a Note using the Vantage search plugin. I don’t think you can do that with Dataview but I am not certain there.
