Custom Object Field Search

how do i get salesforce to search custom fields on custom objects?


currently when i use the left hand tool bar search is shows no results on custom objects, even if i select the custom object from the drop down. i was under the impression salesforce automatically will handle this. So either there is an issue or there is a configuration setting i have to set.

Ah, you'll need to edit the field and set it as an external ID.
